Kiyomizu-Dera

Kiyomizu-Dera is a very well-known temple in the hills of eastern Kyoto. It’s famous for the huge veranda outside the main hall. It juts out over the hillside and offers impressive views of the city. The entire structure is supported by huge wooden pillars and constructed entirely without nails, using only joinery.

It was starting to get dark by that point so the pictures didn’t turn out very well.IMG_0806.JPG

The temple also includes other structures, including a pagoda, and a fountain fed by a waterfall (Kiyomizu means “clearwater”).IMG_0797IMG_0802IMG_0813
