The place with the 10000 gates. Be well prepared to climb all the way up and catch the good view of Kyoto. If you are lucky, you might see fox(es) too.

Recommend to visit this site in the afternoon as the sun shining through the tree canopy on the gates gives it a good photo taking session. Be prepared for the exhausting climb and wear comfortable clothing and shoes if you intend to reach the peak....More

The walk up the hill is much longer than one might think and than the maps on site suggest. But it's worth it and there are cafes/restaurants and vending machines along the way. And it's free of charge.

I'd almost call this a must do. Do some research before you get there because it is hard to get a full story once you get there. But it is a great work, quite energetic, but with some amazing visuals all along the trip. Great...More

There are more than 1000 Torii (鳥居) that is Gateway at the entrance to Shinto Shrine at Fushimi Inari. It’s so so fantastic scenery.

Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist
attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens,
temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for
strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine
itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the
mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers,

The area is large and I think there are plenty of nooks for you to take your child for his nap. A few hours is good. I did not notice any lockers in the Inari Station. Probably because it is a small train station.

I went in the mid November. I believe Mid November till mid December would be alright. I enjoyed the best scenery and also enjoyed the cold weather too for my last visiting.
