Katsura Imperial Villa
#1 of 8 Sights & Landmarks in Nisikyo
Our group of 35 followed a guide on a circuit along paths and a stone-paved walk that brought us to various elevations for different views of the scenery, made even prettier by trees with leaves of red and gold.
The gardens are absolutely amazing...AMAZING.......spectacular..and so very soothing to the Spirit of the frenzied tourist whose plate overflows with must-see sights.
Kinkakuji Temple Kyoto, Japan 4.3 mi away
#3 of 1,019 Sights & Landmarks in Kyoto
One of the most incredible sights in Kyoto with gorgeous water features (Pavilion Pond, Carp Rock), beautiful gardens, an awesome Tea House and of course The Golden Pavilion with its three styles of architecture.
... - the serene lake with temple reflecting beautifully on the surface surrounded by a zen garden, perfectly manicured trees and grounds, koi fish swimming to and fro, tea in a forest, and Buddhist site for prayer.

Kiyomizu-dera Temple Higashiyama 5.2 mi away
#1 of 35 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.

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.
Suzumushi Temple Kyoto, Japan 0.7 mi away

Toji Kyoto, Japan 3.1 mi away
#15 of 1,019 Sights & Landmarks in Kyoto
Within the context of a city featuring an abundance of world- and national- heritage sites and seemingly countless ancient temples, Toji Temple sits comfortably as a Top 20 attraction within Kyoto.
However, this World Heritage Site is very impressive and highly recommended for its gardens, arts, pagoda, and the sculptures that really create a very mystic atmosphere.
Ninna-ji Temple Kyoto, Japan 3.2 mi away
#12 of 1,019 Sights & Landmarks in Kyoto
I really enjoyed my visit to this temple - the views as you walk around the house are beautiful and its much less crowded than many other sites around.
This is another huge and very beautiful temple in Kyoto, a World Heritage Site.

Otagi Nenbutsu-ji Temple Kyoto, Japan 3.7 mi away
#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.

A hall of a thousand bigger than life statues a definite site to see, amazingly preserved and intricately beautiful statues.
