They have a restaurant on site that serves 'shyojin ryori' style cooking (monk's diet so great for those who are veg/vegan) but it is recommended you make reservations if you are planning on having lunch.

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.

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.
Side streets behind the bamboo forest are charming and lots of major temples and off the beaten path temples and historical sites.

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.

Yet, it is one of the 'no photography' temples, which may be a detraction for visitors and tourists, but for people who are also interested in unique sights, history, and stories, this is an amazing place to visit.
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.
