Fushimi Inari Taisha, Kyoto 2018

Fushimi Inari Taisha is one of those places that will forever be memorable for this trip. This is where my patience for my husband was tested. If you don’t know, Fushimi Inari Taisha is a shrine that’s located in a mountain. The nice thing about it is the hundreds of torii gates all the way to the top.

When we were planning our itinerary, we agreed to climb all the way to the top to see what’s up there. All was going well, until we reached a fork on the path. Going left would take you back to the city and out of the shrine grounds while going right would take you to the top of the mountain. My husband and I decided to go left. Midway we realized we must’ve taken a wrong turn. I told him that we should just go down since I didn’t want to go up flights of stairs and inclined paths. My husband wanted to continue up the mountain.

We ended up going up the mountain but believe me when I told you, I was so angry and tired while we were going up. There was even a point when I let my husband walk ahead of me because I was so annoyed with him. I even have a video of myself threatening my husband that if the peak wasn’t worth it I would kill him. There wasn’t a view point at the peak nor would you be able to see the whole of Kyoto. At the peak is a shinto shrine, FYI. 🙂

The only consolation I had for this sudden mountain climbing expedition we had was the food that I was able to eat after.

This part of the trip was tiring for me. I hate stairs and inclined paths but I’d still do it again. Marriage, I’ve realized, is like that. You give and take. My husband gives a lot to me and even if I hated what we did that day, I’d gladly do it for him.

To keep it short and simple: I'm thirty+ years old. Still plenty young, but not as young as I used to be.


  1. Naku Kat, yan pa naman ang isa sa mga pinupuntahan sa Kyoto. Sayang naman kung hindi mo pupuntahan. Good thing tumuloy ka pa din kahit naiinis ka na sa mister mo at nagtangka ka pang papatay. Hahah.

    Walang ganyan sa Tokyo. Kung meron man maiksi lang at hindi ganyan kaganda. Kaya mabuti na lang tumuloy kayo. ☺

    1. Maganda naman talaga at habang umaakyat ka sa bundok, mas solo niyo yung mga torii gate. Nice experience din naman pero kung gusto mo lang makita is yung gates, dun ka na lang sa baba hahaha!!!
