When to Visit the Kiyomizu-dera Temple
The Kiyomizu-dera temple, dating from 778 AD, is part of the Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto UNESCO World Heritage site. It is located up a hill through the exciting historic district, Higashiyama, which is filled with shops and restaurants. The most enchanting time of day to visit the temple is during the evening illuminations. The temple is brilliantly lit during the annual Hanatoro event held in mid-March, as well as during the autumn leaf season in November.
