About the Autumn Leaves Season at Fushimi Inari Taisha

The autumn leaves at Fushimi Inari Taisha typically reach their peak from mid-November to early December. Although not specifically a light-up event for the autumn leaves, following the year 2022, from November 18th to 30th, 2023, a light-up event was held along the approach to the Honden.

While Fushimi Inari Taisha is not specifically known as a destination for autumn leaves, the area around Teichouan, which I will introduce later, was beautifully adorned with fall foliage. If you visit during the autumn leaves season, be sure to stop by this area.
