Limit search to Higashiyama.
Kiyomizu-dera Temple
#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.

Beautiful! my favorite temple! the colors and the view is all amazing!! is definitely a MUST if you go to Japan.
The hike is stellar, the views brilliant, the atmosphere serene, and the shrine that you hit every now and then just adds to the profoundly calming, yet exhilarating nature of the whole thing.

Sanjusangendo Temple
#2 of 35 Sights & Landmarks in Higashiyama
A hall of a thousand bigger than life statues a definite site to see, amazingly preserved and intricately beautiful statues.
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.

I recommend just walking along the canals and taking in all the sights and atmosphere of the area, particularly during Cherry Blossom season where the flowers are really starting to bloom.
The buildings in this preserved site give a memorable images how the old Kyoto was.

Like the boxer who grows his own eggplants and serves them in his okonomiyaki joint, or the nabemono place with the hidden gem of an upstairs dining room with great views of the canal.

Yasaka Shrine Kyoto, Japan 0.5 mi away
#63 of 1,018 Sights & Landmarks in Kyoto
Every other temples in Japan, in my humble opinion, looks quite the same and boring; although the Japanese are always very good at preserving the sites and making it a very peaceful and charming places.
Recommended time to visit would be autumn as the beautiful leaf colors compliment the inside and outside view of this Yasaka Shrine greatly.

Chion-in Temple
#4 of 35 Sights & Landmarks in Higashiyama
When descending from the temple I personally prefer to use the steep traditional steps to exit through the main gate, as the descent offers and amazing view of it.
We saw many sites in Kyoto during our stay, but the view of the steps going up through the Main gate here is definitely one of my top three favorite pictures that we were able to take.
