Have your wishes granted at Kiyomizu-dera, an independent Buddhist temple and World Heritage Site dating back to 1633. Constructed during the Heian period, the main temple and its famous stage were built without using nails. From the stage, look out onto the treetops below and the view of Kyoto in the distance. In the temple complex, drink from the three streams of the Otowa waterfall, whose waters are believed to have wish-granting powers. At the Jishu shrine to the god of love and matchmaking, try to walk between two stones with your eyes closed: those who are successful will also successfully find love. Using our international travel planner, Kyoto attractions like Kiyomizu-dera can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

外国からの友人家族を、京都で一番有名なお寺へということで清水寺に連れて行った。観光客や着物を着た外国人観光客で人が多く、勾配の急な坂道、子供連れと年配だったため疲れていた。そのため清水の舞台もあまり感動してもらえず、わかりやすい金閣寺の方が勾配もなくよかったのかなと感じた。Family friends from foreign countries in Kyoto in most famous the temple said to took in the Kiyomizu Temple. For many tourists and foreign tourists wearing a kimono, was a steep gradient, families with children and the elderly were tired. That is easy to understand, not too much touched the stage of Kiyomizu kinkakuji gradient without good and felt.show original

my fav spot is the place that you can see Kyoto tower from there. I came when autumn illumination. and I can't to stop say whoooaaa whoooaa.. it's so cool!!
The area and the shrine are beautiful. The path to get there is very nice as well and it passes through nice narrow streets. Unfortunately the main temple was under renovation when I was there.

Went because of its cultural popularity and loved it. It can get a little tough walking up the hill for big guys like me, but it was worth it. Entry fee was 400 Yens for an adult, and you get to see the famous spot looking over the cliff with a great background view of Kyoto. Although this was late in march, there were barely any cherry blossoms, which was sad, but was still worth the trip. It's a 15-20min walk from Kiyomizu station. I'd avoid taking the busses when leaving the temple near closing time (closes at 6pm), since people were forming huge lines for them.
