So I suggest just telling them to take you to the Kodaji Temple which is literally separated by a street from the Park Hyatt. 15 second walk. Will save you a lot of grief. So far the property is nothing short of spectacular.
This won't help for the initial ride, but I always try to get a business card from the hotel to show to taxi drivers in Kyoto.

Alternatively if you're ok paying a bit extra you can just use Uber to hail a taxi and it'll show them where to go. Also useful for hailing if you're in the middle of nowhere.
