More Info

◆"Don't jump off the cliff" / Kiyomizu Temple
This temple predates the foundation of Kyoto and has had millions of pilgrims ever since. It is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site with over 30 structures, including a huge wooden veranda in front of the main hall that juts out over the cliff and provides you a panoramic view of Kyoto. There is a famous expression: that states "You must jump off the stage of Kiyomizu." It means that you should take the plunge to make your dreams come true.

◆"Most walked street in Kyoto" / Kiyomizuzaka
This sloped path leading to Kiyomizu temple was originally paved with stones in about 808 AD and may be the most walked street in Kyoto. It is lined with old wooden houses running restaurants and shops selling pottery, artworks and other traditional goods. You may come across young women dressed in kimono and feel as though you had traveled back in time to the days of 300 years ago.

"Simbol Shrine of Gion"/Yasakajinja
Gion Festival, one of the three important festivals of Kyoto, is a festival of this shrine.
