Kiyomizu-dera Temple清水寺

Event

A Buddhist temple in Kyoto City's Higashiyama Ward and one of the most popular destinations in the country for enjoying fall foliage and other seasonal scenery. From the main temple, you can get a sweeping view of mountains dyed completely crimson with the turned leaves and enjoy the contrast between the Kiyomizu Stage jutting out over a cliff at the Okunoin and the surrounding autumn colors. At night, trees on the grounds are illuminated, giving visitors a taste of magical beauty a little different from what you can see in the daytime.

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
