Walk down the hill called Sannenzaka on the way home and set your google map app to Rakusho café with the most amazing koi pond and garden. (I'd have loved to have kept this secret discovered in Diane Durston's book, OLD KYOTO, but clearly it's in blogs and such, as it was full of people)
I love Kiyomizu and have been there many times. I like the walk from Yasaka Jinjya up the shopping streets that lead to the temple. Try to go at a early hour because the crowds get crazy, and currently Kiyomizu is having restoration done so it’s covered with tarps.
Check if the main hall is under construction, although it still worth a visit even if the main hall in maintenance. If you have plenty of time, you can also walk /trek to the other side of the mountain via one of Kiyomizu north gate to Seikanji temple. It takes around 15-20 mins to walk through the forest (cleared walking path/asphalt at some points). This is a hidden gem that totally worth the trek, it takes you away from the madding crowd at Kiyomizu and rewards you with one of the best and peaceful moss garden in Kyoto. The view is also amazing.
It gets incredibly busy later on in the day so get there when it opens. You'll have the place to yourself and it's absolutely stunning. I loved it so much I'm already planning to return when I visit Japan again next year.
Go in the summer when the place is more green, and make sure the place is actually open completely. We went when there was construction/restoration and weren’t able to get the good photo from the lookout.
Great place to go - I try and visit every time I’m in Kyoto. Like most places in Kyoto, try and get there early to beat the tourist rush. There are also lots of people who go there to pray, so be mindful of that when you make your visit.

Location is fantastic! Staff were extremely friendly, helpful and delightful. It was especially worth noting, because we were so close, we visited the Kiyomizu-dera temple early in the morning and it was one of the best experiences in the world!

Next door to Kiyomizu-dera temple which is fantastic. Room was clean and spacious. You can watch TV while in the tub. 20 minute walk to Gion district, 30 minute walk to town center. The washing machine was quick and cleaned our clothes great.
