One of Japan’s World Heritage Sites has just been renovated this year, so you must visit the Shimizu Stage.
Kiyomizu Temple is the oldest temple in Kyoto. It is also known as the three major scenic spots in Kyoto along with Kinkakuji Temple and Nijo Castle. Kiyomizu Temple is unexpectedly large. I did not expect that there are hundreds of steps up and down in a temple. The main building itself is also a typical representative of the architecture of the Heian period in Japan. While absorbing the achievements of Chinese architecture, it has increased the integration with Japanese national culture.
This Buddhist temple is one of the most beautiful in ancient Kyoto. It was built without a single nail on top of a 13-meter stage - in ancient times, jumping from the stage was seen as a sign of bravery. Near the main hall vistors can catch and drink the water from Otowa waterfall, believed to have wish-granting powers.
Great place to visit alone , spiritual and great adventure
Insanely beautiful landscape and architecture...
If you have few time in Kyoto this is the temple you must visit! This wooden architecture marvel is located on a hill, surrounded by green setting, has a beautiful wood balcony with views to the city.There are several small temples where y can bestow good fortune and the best wishes. It was also lovely to see all young girls all dressed up with kimonos to visit the temple!! Beautiful!!
