I recommend to go for the Zuihô-in sub-temple rather than the Daisen-in one (you have to pay 400¥ for EACH temple, and you can only visit 6/23)
You cannot take any pictures in the Daisen so keep your eyes open !
The gardens in this temple complex are wonderful and a visit here is recommended for them alone. There are various sub temples, only some of which are open at any one time. This is a great place to visit if you want a memorable temple...More
Daikokuji Temple is dedicated to Daikoku, a Buddhist divinity of fortune. The main building is quite modern, and there is nothing special to see except "Kinun Shimizu" on its premises.

Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the
mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
