Imakumano-Kannon-ji is a temple of Higashiyama which was founded in the 9th century. While not on every tourist map, it is a nice stop if you plan to visit Seiryu-ji and Unryuu-in which are nearby. The temple is reached through a small bridge under maple trees which, of course, look best in autumn. There's also a nice little pagoda perched in the hill which provides a moderately interesting viewpoint on the southern part of the Higashiyama district of Kyoto.
