Day 13: Kiyomizudera, Kyoto

Day 12: Gion, Kyoto

Another World Heritage site to visit in Kyoto is Kiyomizudera. This temple is famous for its wooden stage that just out from its main hall, 13 meters above the hillside below.  The main hall was built without the use of nails, how clever!!  To get there, you can take a bus number 100 or 206 and get off at Gojo Zaka or Kiyomizu Michi bus stop, from there you need to walk uphill about 10 minutes before arriving the temple.

Love stone is apparently very popular among the youngster.  If someone can walk blind-folded from one stone end then touch the stone from another end, she or he is believed to find the true love.
