Kiyomizu-dera

After Arashiyama, my friend and I met up with others to visit Kiyomizu-dera, one of the biggest and most visited temple complexes of Kyoto. It is set on a hill in the eastern outskirts of Kyoto. Its main temple is part of the UNESCO World Heritage and is always worth a visit. At the foot of the temple complex lies a traditional quarter with street after street filled with small shops, restaurants, and just plainly gorgeous townhouses.

The main temple of Kiyomizu is built on top of a grandiose wooden stage from which one has a fabulous view over Kyoto.

  1. Oh, that last one–with the glare from the light, and the sakura in the dark and the building on the left, I love it. If it were a painting, I’d complain about the dude with the mask. But it’s not a painting, and it’s beautiful and reminds me to be homesick.

  2. Thank you so much! I also didn’t like the dude with the mask and probably should have photoshopped him out of there! Maybe I’ll do that tonight ^^
