Going Osaka / Kyoto from Nov 9-17 .
Where should I go to see Autumn leaves ?
I know it is a bit too early.
Thank you .
Osaka
Minoo park (hike)
there is also 金剛山 kongo san, I do not have much information on this except that one this is the tallest point in Osaka and the mountain straddles Nara as well with it's peak inside Nara.

Kyoto
Fushimi Inari (hike)
Kyomizudera is also an excellent choice

head towards the mountains for koya

u will need to head to those places that are of higher altitude where it is colder.

a possible place to see autumn leaves will be koyasan. if u are heading to koyasan, it is recommended that u stay overnight there to experience the temple stay, and also coz it is quite rush to do it as a day trip from osaka

Anyone can advice is it possible/good to do a day trip to Kyoto from Tokyo? And how do I go? Their railway and transportation guide is

Was hoping to get some amulet as souvenir and also some sightseeing as the temple all looks majestic. Will be going around mid to late Sep and staying in Ueno.

no, not recommended.
it is about 3hrs by shinkansen from tokyo to kyoto. u will probably need to get the JR pass to cover the trip, and the pass cost 28300yen (about 400 SGD). it is not worth the money, and is too rush to make it a day trip

for amulets, how about going to Meiji shrine in Harajuku?

on a side note,

Kyoto/Osaka has pretty good and cheap accommodations... why not stay there for 3-4 days?

Concentrate Tokyo area will do. Cover wide area will takes up too much of your travelling time(and money). Tokyo and its surrounding is already dotted with lots of sights to see and experience.

Osaka/Kyoto leave it to your next trip lo.

I agree. There are many things to do in Tokyo (or Osaka/Kyoto). I, too, prefer to do 2 separate trips. Also with airfare so cheap nowadays, travelling on JR pass can almost buy you another return air-ticket!
