Kiyomizudera (清水寺)

Kiyomizudera (清水寺), one of the UNESCO World heritage sites, is well-known for its wooden buildings architecture and the way it was built. I spent some good time there and really fascinated by the architecture. The site is also beautiful in the night, just different. At the present, some of the buildings are under renovation. These pictures were taken in Dec 2013.

Strolling around Higashiyama from quiet morning to bustling hour is an experience guaranteed to delight everyone. The people, traditional houses, architectures, temples, food… I enjoy my time when I was there, and staying there makes it even special.
