Kiyomizu-dera is known for the Japanese very famous proverb “Kiyomizu-no-butai kara tobioriru”(means the last make-or-break decision), and very old and beautiful place in Kyoto.
Kiyomizu-dera – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kiyomizu-dera (清水寺?), officially Otowa-san Kiyomizu-dera (音羽山清水寺?) is an independent Buddhist temple in eastern Kyoto. The temple is part of the Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto (Kyoto, Uji and Otsu Cities) UNESCO World Heritage site. (It should not be confused with Kiyomizu-dera in Yasugi, Shimane, which is part of the 33-temple route of the Chūgoku 33 Kannon Pilgrimage through western Japan.)
