One day Fushimi-Inari and Kurama Itinerary 2018/5/12 17:45
Hi, I will be visiting Kyoto soon, staying near the Gojo station area. Will it be too rushed if I wanted to fit in visits to bothFushimi-Inari and Kurama/Kibune in one day? I plan to take public transportation (train) to both places. Thanks.

Depending on what you'd like to do in Kurama/Kibune, e.g. will you be hiking the Kurama-Kibune path, and whether you'll be taking the cable car up at Kurama. Also depends whether you'll be only visiting Fushimi Inari or hike all the way up.

If you will only visits the temples at both Kurama and Kibune, it can fit, especially if you're going in summer when daylight time is long. I went there last Oct, walking from Kibune to the temple (instead of taking bus), took train to Kurama and hike up + cable car down. We started at 830am, ended at 1:30pm, but we took it slow and plenty of photo taking. It's still reasonable time for Fushimi Inari.

Yes is it doable. But a lot of uphill walking if you do both route to the fullest.

Fushimi Inari is about 2-3 hours if you walk to the top.

I haven't done the Kurama to Kifune, but I read it is a half day ie- 4 hours if you bus it back from Kifune to the train station.

I say go for it if your leg are up to the challenge. They are easily linked by public transport, (and to your hotel), so travel wont be an issue on the day.
