Japan is a country that has many exciting and beautiful tourist destinations. In addition, Japan also has hundreds of temples that are quite popular tourist destinations among tourists. One of the most popular temples to visit is Kiyomizudera. This temple has the meaning of the Temple of Holy Water. This temple is also included in the list of world cultural heritage by UNESCO.
Kiyomizudera Temple was first built in 780, adjacent to the Otowa spring located on the East side of Kyoto. This temple is a temple of the Nara Buddhist sect and has been a UNESCO world heritage since 1994 ago. Every year, Kiyomizudera temples are always crowded with tourists and can be entered into the itinerary of tourists visiting Tokyo.
Kiyomizudera Temple looks beautiful because it is surrounded by tall green trees that are so beautiful. In addition, we can see the architecture of buildings that are very classic and elegant like those of the Japanese shogunate. To be able to reach Kiyomizudera, we need to climb and pass a small winding road that is quite uphill.
In 1633 ago, Kiyomizudera was built without using nails. If seen, it might be similar to Borobudur Temple. The quality of the wood used to build Kiyomizudera Temple is very high-quality, this is evident from the strength of this building, although it has been built for decades.
We can also see the beauty of the cherry blossoms from a distance while at Kiyomizudera Temple. So, if you are on vacation in Japan, don’t miss this one!
