We were surprised to see bamboo forest on the top of the hill. If we've known this earlier we won't go to the crowded Arashimaya Bamboo Forest.

Afterward, we got lunch at the food stalls at the front of the shrine. My friends told me one thing we need not to worry when visiting big cities in Japan is food. We can always find vending machine or food stalls at the tourist places.  Food stalls in front of Fushimi Inari Japanese Street Food at Fushimi Inari
