Two train stops south out of Kyoto, a brilliant walk right from Fushimi station takes you to the temple of Fushimi-Inari, and continuing up the hill through 10,000 red torii dedicated by companies to the gods of business.
Once you reach the top, the descent on the other (northern) side is much more wild and unkept, and the trail comes out by some houses before coming to another large and impressive temple, the Tofukuji.
The route itself is pretty obvious. Although it can be confusing as at times the trails divide, only top rejoin after a few hundred metres, and all signs are not in English. However, those with a good head for direction should have no trouble.
This really isn't a famous shrine, but I think it's special because of the long rows of Torii, the gate-like structure located in front of many temples (often orange in color). Walking through it is a bit eerie, especially at sunset, but it's worth the trip if you've never really got a good look at Torii before. This shrine is especially good for bringing prosperity to your business.
There's no admission fee to visit.
