If you are viewing all the temples in the north west of Kyoto, then I would recommend that you persevere to Daikaku-ji. The reason for that advice is that on the way you will see other temples, but this one has variations of shrines, architecture, not to mention colour, plus a large lake. Also, it has many nightingale floors, i.e. the ones which squeak when you walk on them. True, it is a distance, but your bus pass will get you there and back if you don't fancy walking. I did this as sixth out of six temples in one day, so my appetite was lagging, but it was still a great site to see and I am really glad that I went the full distance.
