Welcome dear travel fans! I've been traveling around the world for 20 years and most of my trips were to Asia. I think I have been crazy about Japan since I was a child and will be happy to share this passion with you.

Additional information

One of the most notable features of Kiyomizu-dera is its large wooden veranda, which stands on tall pillars and offers stunning views of the surrounding city. The veranda is particularly popular in the spring and fall when the cherry blossoms and autumn leaves are in full bloom.

The temple complex also includes several other buildings and structures, including the Main Hall, the Jishu Shrine, and the Koyasu Pagoda. The Main Hall houses a statue of the Thousand-armed Kannon Bodhisattva, while the Jishu Shrine is dedicated to the deity of love and matchmaking.

Kiyomizu-dera is also known for its numerous cultural festivals throughout the year, including the New Year’s Eve bell-ringing ceremony and the Omizutori festival in March. The temple is a popular tourist destination and is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
