The temple was completely different in person than I expected. I thought the main deck faced the city, but it actually faces to the side, which makes for a great shot with the city in the background. I loved it!! It was stunning and really fun to walk around. The area to walk around was much bigger than I expected as well.
If staying nearby definitely worth being up there to see Kyoto at night just on closing 6pm. But return again before 7am the next morning as the serenity is amazing. Temples without crowds are the only way to go if it is manageable
I love Kiyomizu-dera not for the temple itself but for the surrounding areas, it transports you back into the Edo period and it shouldn't be missed! Make sure to allocate enough time to check out the area around Kiyomizu e.g Ninenzaka & Sannenzaka
Great place to visit. This temple is in a beautiful setting and has a number of different areas to visit. The main building was under restoration when we visited and wrapped in scaffolding but there is still access to the interior and it is still well worth going through. It will be superb once restored to its full glory.
The main hall was being refurbished when we went. Nothing spectacular per se. Beautiful views of Kyoto from the top. YOU MUST visit the womb of the budha (dark pitch experience, a bit scary but refines your senses...it is a MUST)
Walk down the hill called Sannenzaka on the way home and set your google map app to Rakusho café with the most amazing koi pond and garden. (I'd have loved to have kept this secret discovered in Diane Durston's book, OLD KYOTO, but clearly it's in blogs and such, as it was full of people)
Great Location. Close to Keihan Railway Gion-Shijo station, not far from Hankyu Rail way Kyoto-Kawaramachi station. And also there are bus stations nearby. You can walk to Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Yasaka-jinja, Hanamikoji-dori for sighting and also KAWARAMACHI for shopping, entertainment and food.
Excellent location, very close to many of the main attractions in Kyoto including Gion area and Kiyomizu-dera temple. The old house was really beautiful. The staff was really friendly and helpful.
