"Kiyomizu-dera" Kiyomizu Temple Tip by aukahkay
Kiyomizu Temple, Kyoto: 76 reviews and 158 photos
A World Cultural Hertage site, Kiyomizudera is the most photographed and visited temple in Kyoto. Most of the present buildings were reconstructions dating back to 1633. It is most noted for Platform Stage where one gets a panoramic view of the surrounding hills of Higashiyama. In spring, Kiyomizudera is particularly attractive with the burst of magnificent colours of the cherry blossoms (sakura). Just below the main hall is a waterfall where visitors drink sacred waters believed to have therapeutic properties.
Directions: Take bus 206 from JR Kyoto Station. Get off at Kiyomizu-michi and walk uphill for 10 minutes past the souvenir shops.
