the big bell which is rung on New Year's Day is only for temple monks iirc besides the ceremony takes place on New Year's Day not CNY

you do ring a bell as part of the praying step at Shinto shrines though

Fushimi Inari is on the south side of Kyoto, I am not sure if you can rent kimono around that part. Gion is nearer Kyomizudera area instead (if that is what you are referring to as the old street)

I would say call ahead and book but I do not have any recommendations, you can try looking up tabelog. They got english site now
yeah, my new year is as per new year not CNY.

the kimono i am only intending to rent from that old street area, then take metro down visit inari, and metro back, walk the old street before returning the kimono.

tabelog? ok thanks. i go check it out.
