Spending 2-3 weeks in Kyoto would allow for a more leisurely exploration of the area, within that time you may also be able to explore nearby areas, so I’d recommend researching sightseeing places in Osaka, Kobe, Nara, etc. just in case.
As for attitudes toward foreigners, just like Rob said above, I have never had an issue and it has been quite the opposite actually. I discovered on my first trip that people were very helpful, and not just train/shop staff (who were always extremely nice), one time I got caught in a light rain and some sweet elderly woman shared her umbrella with my brother and I without hesitation (I wish I understood Japanese at the time because whatever she was saying sounded nice). Like Rob said, don’t stand out or be rude and you shouldn’t have any issues.
