Nominated as one of the seven wonders of the modern world, the Kiyomizu-dera is a series of Japanese Buddhist temples. Located in the eastern city of Kyoto, the Kiyomizu-dera is one of the ancient monuments of the city and is counted among the historic monuments of ancient Kyoto, and between the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Caratteriazzato scenic beauty and a quite special nature, the Kiyomizu-dera is a must for travelers to visit the city of Kyoto. Rich in history, the structure is worth a visit even for the particular architecture: the main hall has a large veranda, supported by tall pillars, that juts over the hill offering breathtaking views over the city. When you go in the building you can enjoy a special atmosphere, thanks to a legendary waterfall (the waterfall Otowa), which runs underneath the main hall, whose waters are divided into three channels that flow into a pond and that would give powers to those who drink. According to an erroneous popular belief, the three channels differ in power, but this interpretation persists in the population who prefer to retain the charm of tradition.

Here visitors can experience a fun local custom: O-kuninushi at the shrine are two rocks placed at 6 feet apart and, starting with his eyes closed by a stone you will reach the other. According to local tradition, if the visitor reggiungerà the stone, he will find love.
