Eikan-do was one of my favorite temples in Kyoto. When we were there, there was a ceremony going on, and many monks were worshipping in one of the main buildings. There is a seating area for visitors to watch. Walking through the temple and hearing them chant was magical.
The colored flags around this worship building were beautiful as well.
There is a short walk up to a pagoda that has amazing views of Kyoto. Go up there and sit for a while.
The garden is nice also, and there is a place to order green tea.
