Otagi Nenbutsu-ji Temple
#7 of 1,019 Sights & Landmarks in Kyoto
I discovered Otagi while researching sites for a private tour of Kyoto and saw pictures of the charming stone statues, each face being unique, some happy, some sad, others contemplative.
It is far from all the hustles of the other tourist sights in Arashiyama however you can visit Adashino Nenbutsuji and Saga Toriimoto Preserved Street during your visit.

Sagano
#49 of 1,019 Sights & Landmarks in Kyoto
Side streets behind the bamboo forest are charming and lots of major temples and off the beaten path temples and historical sites.
Many shops and shrines and if you take a rickshaw ride they have 'around the block' run which goes for about an hour and you get to see all the highlights with the guide stopping to explain the sites.
Hogonin Temple
#65 of 1,019 Sights & Landmarks in Kyoto
We queued like 30minutes before entering this temple and I must say this is another great experience to have if you like all the night view of the Autumn foliage!
Adashino Nenbutsu-ji Temple Ukyo
#74 of 1,019 Sights & Landmarks in Kyoto

The garden is a lovely combination of sights and sounds and scents, to engage every human sense.
Senko-ji Temple
#104 of 1,019 Sights & Landmarks in Kyoto
When you reach the temple on the mountain top, so quiet and you don’t believe you are in Kyoto (Most of Kyoto’s good view spot, you hear various city noise, ambulance siren, car noise, PA, all kind of city noise)...
We liked the most relaxing in the sitting room with a balcony that has the most awesome views over Arashimaya forests and whole Kyoto.
