Where you'll be

First, we'll see Fushimi Inari Shrine, one of Japan's most famous and popular Shinto shrine. This place attracts both Japanese and foreign tourists, making this place one of the most popular tourist locations of Japan. Next, we step away from the busy area, and head to the local shopping area of Fushimi. Finally, because Fushimi is known for it's sake, we will go check out two sake breweries of the area, and try some sake tasting!
