We like Eikando, Tenjuan (Nanzenji), Kiyomizudera probably in that order.

Kodaiji, Shorenin, Chionin were nice as well but not quite as stunning as the others I think. They are probably the easiest ones to combine with Kiyomizudera though as they are within short walking distance.

I'm not 100% sure on the progress so hopefully someone else can help but I suspect Eikando will be nice in the next day or so, although it is probably past the peak.
