Need some itinerary and routes advises please.

I would like to cover Nishiki Market, Fushimi Inari Shrine, Higashiyama District and Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Jishu Shrine in a day.

In the Morning, we will go to Nishiki Market at 9am and spend about 2-3 hours. If the next stop we want to go is Fushimi Inari Shrine, we will take train to Inari Station, and spend another 2-3 hours.

By then it will be 2-3pm. From Fushimi Inari Shrine, next we would like to cover Higashiyama District,Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Jishu Shrine. Understand that Jishu Shrine is closing at 5PM and the Temple at 6.30PM.

Q) How about Higashiyama District? What time is the operating hours of the shops?

Q) Can we cover Higashiyama District, Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Jishu Shrine within 3-4 hours?

Q) From Fushimi Inari Shrine, is it recommended to go back to Kyoto Station and take Bus 100 or 206, then walk 10 mins to temple? Is there any other way?

Q) How should we plan our stops? Which comes first? Higashiyama District, Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Jishu Shrine.

Thank you very much!

most shops will start closing once the surrounding temples are closed as well

it is faster to take the train from inari station back to kyoto, and then take the bus...

but the fastest way looking at your schedule is to rent e-bikes provided you have google maps or good with directions...

in a pinch, consider taking taxis if you are a group
