I found a nice walking tour of Kyoto and followed it.
Temple of the Silver Pavillion.
This castle is famous for the "nightingale" floors... squeaky wooden floors that alerted the occupants if anybody was attempting to sneak up on them.
Kinkakuji, Temple of the Golden Pavillion.
This is Kyoto's most famous tourist attraction, a spectacular building. It was busy even in February, I imagine at the height of the tourist season it is difficult to get a clear view of the building!
