Hodo-ji (宝幢寺) is a small local temple in the north-east of Kyoto. While not a any tourist map, the maple here do offer nice colours to the visitors in autumn. A few jizo (地蔵) statues with funny poses can also be found here and there on the premises. Hodo-ji can be a stop if you do the walk from Shisen-do to Renge-ji but your day will be already very packed so it's probably not really worth it.
