The Temple Stage…

by on Dec.04, 2016, under Life, Photography

We’d planned to stay in the beautiful city of Kyoto for four days. As in Tokyo we’d booked ourselves a nice little place via AirBnB.

The place we were staying was very conveniently located within walking distance of a number of interesting places. This included a number of fabulous temples and grounds as well as one of the main centres of Kyoto, Gion. It was also close to one of the most fabulous temples in Kyoto – the famed Kiyomizu-dera.

This temple has amazing picturesque views, it is best known for its wooden stage that juts out from its main hall, 13 meters above the hillside below. The stage affords visitors a nice view of the numerous cherry and maple trees below as well as of the city of Kyoto in the distance. The main hall, which together with the stage was built without the use of nails.

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

I remember coming here to this place as a child so as soon as we’d settled into our accomodation we went for a walk up the hill to visit.
