Hi there!

I would recommend visiting mount Fuji as a day trip from Tokyo. This because most routes to Fuji are via Tokyo.

As for Kyoto, I would recommend a 7 Day JR Pass for visiting Kyoto. This because a normal return alone will cost the same as a 7 day JR Pass, now you get 7 days of unlimited train travel for the same price!

With the JR Pass you can use the Shinkansen (High Speed Bullet rail) directly between Tokyo and Kyoto. Some stops on the way which you can consider are Nagoya and Shizuoka.

Hope this helps!
Daniel

Both Koya and Miyajima are amazing and I would heartily recommand a temple stay at Koya if you have the change.

Kyoto (unlike Tokyo) is really build around tradition. You can find many temples in and around the city. I would especially recommend a visit to Kurama near Kyoto if you wish to walk a more remote path and experience Zen for yourself.
