Banshu Kiyomizu-dera Temple (播州清水寺)
"A Buddhist temple located a 20-minute drive from the Sanda-nishi interchange on the Maizuru-Wakasa Expressway. The temple has two main buildings, the Daikodo enshrine a thousand-armed statue of Kannon and the Konponchudo enshrining an 11-headed Kanzeon Bodhisattva which is rarely shown to the public, the temple's principal object of worship. Cherry trees and rhododendrons grow on the grounds and visitors can enjoy the sight of their blossoms from late April to mid-May. The temple is also the 25th temple on the Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage and, in order to distinguish it from the Kiyomizu-dera Temple in Kyoto, the temple is also known as the ""Banshu Kiyomizu-dera."""

Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture's main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country's most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
