Also, try to research the status of places you're going. I went to a temple in Kyoto and it was partially under construction. Had to do a lot of photoshopping to remove the crane.
Something like this page, I was planning to go here in November.

Yep, that website's been invaluable! Much more involved in planning a trip through a developed country than my usual trips through wilderness areas...

Do you know whether you can use tripods on the grounds of the Fushimi Inari shrine in Kyoto? Not at all, only in outdoor areas (e.g. the corridors of torii gates) or everywhere? How does this apply to shrines more generally?

Any suggestions on the best spots to shoot Fuji, with respect to foreground interest and likely visibility in November? How much snow can I expect to see on the peak then (guessing it's halfway between the 'autumn' and 'winter' photos on the web)? I've got a sunrise and sunset shot planned from a hill overlooking Hakone, but would like to have opportunities from several different angles on different days, so that I don't return empty-handed if the clouds don't cooperate on that day. I'm guessing the Five Lakes area won't be ideal if the autumn leaves have already fallen by the time I get there?

I'm sure the shrines are all over the place even though most say no tripods. Have you considered buying one that will fit in your bag, since most places don't do bag checks?

As for Fuji, haven't been there in ages. I would suggest searching the web or going through Google's pictures and finding something you like.
