no idea where u accommodation is located. but gion is in eastern kyoto, near kiyomizudera and maruyama park, so it shld be easy to fit into ur first day itinerary.

fushimi inari is in southern kyoto, near inari station. u can hike through the thousands of torii gate over the mountain and end up in tofukuji temple a station away. this will take u the whole morning. other than that, i cant think of anything else around that area
oK is this workable?

Morning take train to inari station, hike through the torii gate over the mountian and end up in tofukuji temple. So i need not to hike down? this half a day?

is there a station near tofukuji where i can take to jr kyoto and maybe to osaka in the for my the other half day?

Thanks

the hike is up and down a small hill. tofukuji temple is at the bottom of the other side.
u can read up on the hike from lonely planet 'hiking in japan' travel guide. just go bookstore read or google for google books can liao

there is a tofukuji station near the temple. u can take train back to kyoto station then to osaka for the rest of the day. or take the train down to Uji as suggested by lillyelf

You can try Ikebukuro area, more specifically in the upper west region of the station.

cant think of anything near... all need to take train/bus.

if not just go osaka earlier loh. i think osaka shld be more interesting for ur kid. can visit aquarium, USJ, HEP5 ferris wheel, osaka castle, nissin museum etc
