I actually donft know Kyoto very well, but I think you could easily spend an entire day in Arashiyama. Either get a bicycle (available at least at Hankyu Arashiyama) or take more time walking and visit not only the main attractions in Arashiyama (which now seem to be overwhelmed by tourist) but just go a little bit father to some temples and shrines. http://bicycletraveljapan.blogspot.com/2018/09/tranquil-part-of-arashi...
I think you like onsen. I can recommend a super sento in Arashiyama. I fear a bit that it might get overcrowded by foreign tourists (here speaking one of them) but when I went it wasnft and the rotenburo area is nicely decorated like a shrine: http://www.ndg.jp/tenzan/en/
Alternatively this one close to Arashiyama Hankyu which did get much less tourists: https://www.hotespa.net/spa/fufu/
Well, I just LOVE onsen. And yes, I know a super sento isnft a real onsen, but if I can finish a day in a rotenburo that is bliss to me. (Last rotenburo on my current stay planned for tomorrow on a hotel at Narita airport).
If you want to visit Kokedera in Arashiyama youfll need a prefixed appointment.
One of the main temples in Arashiyama has a very nice Buddhist restaurant: Tenryuji. We went there some (maybe 10 yrs?? ago ) and it was a great and relaxing experience. (The temple itself has a nice garden but is for sure on JG and probably now overrun by tourists. )
@rkold, maybe also something for you to try out, as I remember it as a strictly vegetarian affair.
If you want some bamboo Forrest w/o tourist either try the area behind Kokedera (have a look at my cycling map where I return) or at the foot of Yoshiminedera.
Also Nagaokakyo seemed nice enough for a visit and doesnft get busy with tourists: http://bicycletraveljapan.blogspot.com/2019/02/osaka-to-kyoto-and-up-t...
It was actually the capital of Japan at some point. Did you know? (I learnt last weekend)http://nagaokakyo-kankou.jp/eng/sights/
Moving on from Arashiyama:
If you do the hike in Kurama you can finish in this onsen: http://www.kurama-onsen.co.jp/index_e.html
Quite nice in the forest (not like Kurokawa Onsen but still). I canft comment on the hike itself as I am strictly on a bicycle and dislike hiking quite profoundly.
Okay. Wow so this became a long post although I donft know a lot about Kyoto and practically nothing about Kyoto Prefecture and o didnft get into Shiga and Nara. Hope something useful for you in my post.
BTW, did you already spend sufficient time in inner Nara Prefecture? Imaicho, Asuka, Hasedera, Dorogawa onsen... maybe there is still enough to discover for yet another (and another) trip to Japan ;-)
