The Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Kyoto, Japan
7th May, 2012

Having finished the sandwiches for lunch (we have learnt to be spartan like the Japanese), it was to the Kiyomize Temple. The temple is located on the eastern outskirts of Kyoto and sits on a lush-green,hill slope, affording one a magnificent view of Kyoto.
Walking around the ample, green grounds of the temple, our tired feet (from Johnny Walker's 3-hour walking tour earlier in the day) were soon a thing of the past. Somehow we felt serene and eager to see more.
There is even a shrine with natural stream water coming out for drinking per the Shinto Custom.
We joined the long queue and drank in some blessings too.
