Things to see in Fushimi
Take a trip to the Fushimi Momoyama Castle. A faithful replica of the original structure—a retirement palace for Emperor Hideyoshi who ruled during the 16th century—this castle is an impressive, towering structure in a traditional Eastern style. In addition, you can visit another site of a former emperor within the scenic castle gardens. The Fushimi Momayamaryo shrine is the home of the tomb of Emperor Meiji, who led the nation during Japan’s industrial revolution. Although you’ll need to scale a lot of steps to reach the top of the hill where his grave lies, you’ll also have a fantastic view of the whole Fushimi district. Descend the steps and take a well-deserved break at the Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum. Learn all about the traditional methods of making this famous wine, and try Fushimi’s own varieties, as well as the pure spring water that gives the district’s sake its distinct flavor.
