If you packed your lunch while visiting the Ginkakuji Temple, there's a visitor's lounge close to the stores where you can eat. It's located past the covered fountain- a place where people wash themselves before entering the temple. I saw some people there eating their lunches. There are tables and chairs where people just relax.

Address: Heaian Temple, Kyoto, Japan
Directions: At the Kyoto Main Bus Terminal (close to the Kyoto Mall), take the bus going to the Heian Temple. You can't miss the temple because it's on the main street of Kyoto!%c*
