Kiyomizu Temple Tours

The Kiyomizu Temple is an ancient institution, dating back to 798 AD and the days of Nara. Its classic design influenced temple architecture for centuries.

The hill-top temple is a Kyoto landmark, and provides fabulous views over the city. The main hall juts out over the hillside and its tumbling waterfall, and is surrounded by gardens and shrines.

You’ll find pavilion teahouses and restaurants in the grounds, and the steeply inclining steps leading up to the temple are lined with souvenir and snack stalls.

Practical Info

Kiyomizu Temple is in the east of Kyoto, best reached by bus from Kyoto Station. The walk uphill takes around 15 minutes.
