Fushimi Momoyama

This is an area located in the south of Kyoto. In 1592, Toyotomi Hideyoshi built the Fushimi Momoyama Castle here. It is still a major landmark building in Fushimi. This area intersects Kamogawa, the Uji River and the Katsura River. Since ancient times, it has been famous for its soft, clear water.

Fushimi, and Yozaki, near Kobe, are two major wine bases in Japan. They are home to many famous wineries including Yellow Sakura, Gekkeikan, Shochikubai and so on.

The headquarters of Fushimi Inari-taisha is home to thousands of birds. Almost three thousand vermilion torii line the mountain from top to bottom. In addition, the Fujimori shrine and its mulberries are also worth a visit. There are a lot of imperial mausoleums along the road, creating a strong historical atmosphere.
