Not flashy or spectacular but very much away from the hordes and a peaceful detour from the main sites. In fact no-one there when we visited. Only needs 15 minutes and a slight detour off the Philosophers Path walk.

For those doing the Tetsugaku-no-Michi (Path of the Philosopher), it's a very rewarding detour!

A serene, hidden treasure. This place offers lectures by the head priest as well as various art events.

Nice quiet temple on the path of philosophy. It is away from everything which means no tourists crowded everywhere. Such a peaceful place. Very nice with all the nature surrounding it.

Went through this one on the way to the silver pavilion, there was a sign not to photograph the monkeys... Didn't spot any though. Many more impressive temples and gardens in Kyoto, only recommended when enough time to kill in Kyoto.
