Otagi Nenbutsu-ji Temple
#6 of 1,089 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.

Tenryuji Temple
#33 of 1,089 Sights & Landmarks in Kyoto
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.
It's a very large and beautiful Zen temple, a World Heritage Site, with a huge Zen garden, prettiest in Autumn with colours of leaves.

Sagano
#55 of 1,089 Sights & Landmarks in Kyoto
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.

#71 of 1,089 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!

Senko-ji Temple
#110 of 1,089 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)...
Because it is located in the far end, away from most major sights, it tends to be overlooked.
