Visiting Fushimi Inari Shrine at the beginning of the year 2016 (Kyoto)

On January 4,I visited Fushimi Inari Shurine in Kyoto.
There are so many people here!
I wonder if we can reach to the main shrine safely...
So many people!
Finally we gave up going to the main shrine...
These gates are famous "Senbon-Torii".
People are praying for the health,happiness of this year.
If you want to visit Fushimi-Inari, It might be better to avoid the beginning of the year.
Especially if you don't want to get involved in crowdedness!
If you visit here,you can't miss "passing through the gates".
It drives out the evil spirits.
