Kiyomizu-dera Temple (清水寺)

Located in Kiyomizu Town, Yasugi City, Kiyomizu-dera is a Buddhist temple devoted to the worship of Kannon that, according to tradition, was founded by the renowned Buddhist monk Sonryu in 587. Since ancient times, it has been famous as a temple where people go to pray for protection against misfortune, and many people continue to visit the temple for this purpose today. Within the temple grounds, visitors can see the Konpon Hall, which has been designated as a National Important Cultural Property; there are also many precious statues of the Buddha, including a wooden statute of Kannon with eleven faces standing upright.

Reviewed:2019/07/05 Nice views!
Wow! Im glad that Im in not-bad shape, because the road was pretty steep going in from where we were dropped off by the a and n oni. I kind of wish wed gone through the many torii gates...
Reviewed:2018/11/16 Big temple
The most famous temple in Kyoto, it’s hard to go up, but it really deserves. Terrific view on the top.
Reviewed:2017/05/27 Worth a visit but traffic inconvenient
Though sharing the same name with the one in Kyoto, it is a much more quiet temple. Still, there is a lot to see without a lot of visitors. Basically, it is free of charge to visit but some spots...

          Shimane Areas


          What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan’s oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
