Kiyomizuera is a Buddhist temple in Kyoto, and one of the most famous landmarks in the city. The large wooden veranda that juts out of the main building and into the trees is very popular among visitors as it offers a scenic view of Kyoto.
Another main attraction is the Otowa waterfall. It is said that your wish will come true if you make a wish while drinking from one of its 3 streams of water. In my haste to carry out the procedure of drinking from a metal cup attached to a long pole, I forgot my wish so I guess I wouldn’t know if the legend is true.
Focus gone wrong – I didn’t mean to focus on the twig!
