Kiyomizu Temple in Osaka

Kiyomizu Temple in Kyoto is very famous.

Actually, there is Kiyomizu Temple in Osaka as well.

Unfortunately, their main building got damaged caused by heavy rain, and the new one is under the construction.

However, you can see two distinguished features of Kiyomizu Temple.

One is a stage….like the one in Kyoto.

The other is a waterfall called “Tamade no Taki”.

Well, in Kiyomizu Temple in Kyoto, there is “Otowa no Taki”, which looks very similar.

This waterfall is the real one. The water runs naturally, not from the tap.

It is said that Prince Shotoku admired its spirituality.
