Today’s Japan Photo: Kiyomizu-dera 清水寺

Today’s Japan Photo: Kiyomizu-dera 清水寺

For Today’s Japan Photo, we will be seeing the beautiful sights of the famous Kiyomizu-dera 清水寺, the UNESCO World Heritage site in Kyoto Prefecture, Japan.

Kiyomizu-dera (清水寺), known more fully as Otowa-san Kiyomizu-dera (音羽山清水寺) is an independent Buddhist temple in eastern Kyoto. The temple is part of the Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto (Kyoto, Uji and Otsu Cities) UNESCO World Heritage site. (It should not be confused with Kiyomizu-dera in Yasugi, Shimane, which is part of the 33-temple route of the Chūgoku 33 Kannon Pilgrimage through western Japan.)
