A short train trip south of Kyoto will bring you to Uji, home of Byodoin. If you have a 10 yen coin, you'll have seen it before. There is a small museum on site, that is of some interest. Toilets are also to be found, which is always handy. The temple itself is very attractive. You are able to enter into the hall as part of a guided group. Wear nice socks, because you'll be required to take your shoes off if venturing inside.
It was on the back of 10yen. The real place is stunning and surrounded by the pond and trees. Reflecting of this temple from the water is my favorite pictures. The museum is well thought,it behinds the temple but underground. So it will not interrupt your scenario at all.
