Kiyomizu Dera

Kiyomizu Dera

1-chome, Kiyomizu, Higashiyama-ku,
Kyoto, Japan
Opening Hours: 6 AM to 5:30 PM
Price: 400 ¥ (3.54 USD)

Set against a stunning natural background that changes its colors with the seasons, this temple’s main hall (Hondo) is a designated national treasure boasting impressive views over Kyoto. It can get busy -especially along the tourist trap-filled street leading up to the temple's compound-, but the crowds are worth putting up with on an evening visit when Kiyomizu’s illuminated, three-storied pagoda bathes the area in a gentle orange glow.

Take the City Bus to Kiyomizumichi or Gojozaka and then walk ten minutes following the crowds.
Hours vary by season
