Temple of “Pure Water”
That is how the name of the temple is translated from Japanese - “clear water”. The temple is located on Mount Otova and was built in 798. It literally hangs over the abyss, its terrace rests on 139 fifteen-meter logs. The view from the temple to the whole of Kyoto is stunning, and the park around Kiyomizu-dera is worthy of attention (like all Japanese parks, of course :)) And the incredibly picturesque Sanie-zaka street with cute souvenir shops and goodies leads to the temple.
