Yasugi Kiyomizu Temple is for removing bad spirits. Amidst its 1400 years of history and traditions, it has gathered a variety of cultural assets, including, four pieces of national important cultural properties and seven pieces of prefectural designated important cultural properties. In particular, the three-storied pagoda made with Japanese Zelkova, which took 33 years to complete, is famous. It is a symbol of Kiyomizu Temple. The spectacular seasonality can be experienced here, especially the cherry blossoms and the new greens in the spring and the foliage in the fall are excellent. Kiyomizu Temple has a large ground with plenty of greenery, including a 1000-year old Japanese cedar, and hosts many visitors who come to see the Buddhist culture and beautiful nature.
