Kiyomizu-dera Temple Higashiyama 2.2 mi away
#1 of 91 Sights & Landmarks in Higashiyama
The temple itself is awe inspiring and the main platform offers some great views of Kyoto and the surrounding area There's also an incredible cemetery that sits alongside the temple worth exploring.
The temple area is quite large, initially you have a great observation area where you can see all of Kyoto, at night the place is illuminated, and the view of Kyoto is great as you can see the glow of Kyoto Tower.

This UNESCO heritage site is one of special interest if you can be there the Sunday (in mid January) when they commemorate the traditional archery contest through the one long back hallway, dating back centuries.
