Kiyomizu-dera Buddhist Temple

I apologize for the lack of posts. I'm so behind with our Japan trip. Kiyomizu-Dera is a Buddhist temple located halfway up of Otowa Mountain in the eastern part of Kyoto. The place is enveloped with lush greenery and it offers remarkable views of the city. However, I was already too exhausted to appreciate it since we'd been exploring around the city. Plus going to the temple was like walking an uphill battle.

If you happen to visit the temple don't forget to take a little sip of water from the Otowa waterfall, which is said to grant wishes to those who drink it.
