If you get temple fatigue in Kyoto, then Nijo Jinya is a good break! The grounds are beautiful, and the site has interesting history, including some cool ninja-related details. We spent about an hour and a half here. The visitor path is well-planned to the point of being a bit too fixed, there's little room to deviate but it does ensure orderly and thorough viewing of all the attractions.
We tried their new English audio guide which comes with a touch pamphlet, it seemed more manageable than the bulky box of the traditional audio guide. It worked fine but as the front desk warned, there is less information loaded (at this point) than in the traditional guide.
