It leaves one's luggage for the coin-operated locker at the station and it goes sightseeing.
Loss of two hours is Taim though it goes to friend's house to put luggage.
Cryptanalysis is necessary for you.

If I understand right, going to my friend's house is a lost of time?

I am not sure where you are from, but any monkey park, where you are walking among the monkeys out in the open, would be unique for me.

Thanks again MMM.
Arashiyama seem really interesting when searching more about it!
-Tetsugaku no Michi (Ginkakuji, Honenin,Heian Shrine)
Imperial Palace/Sento Gosho worth viewing?
Fushimi Inari Shrine, Daigoji Temple, Toji Temples were deleted. I would replace them with Arashiyama. Better choice?
How long do you take to walk from Kyoto Station to Kiyomizudera? (Just trying to figure out the distance scale on my maps)

I have done the walk a couple times, and it is less than an hour. Again, people say I am crazy, but I have spent the same amount of time waiting for buses to get there, and I like to be on the move.
Arashiyama is a neat area, and I bet you will like it. I think your new schedule looks good, but please don't take my word for it.
I don't think I have been to Imperial Palace/Sento Gosho, so I can't say for sure.
