It is about 5km in a straight-line path. If you hope to watch each temples, it would be a day-long excursion. Spring and Autum are best season to visit to Kyoto. In the spring, there are many cherry blossoms (sakura) here and there. You may take a beautiful picture of red and yellow leaves against the background of the temples or shrines in the fall.
