Kiyomizu-dera Temple of night, lighting it up

Kiyomizu-dera Temple of Kyoto is a very beautiful temple, but the night light up is more beautiful.

It is April 10 on that day.The cherry blossoms tree begin to be scattered, but can still enjoy going to see cherry blossoms at night.

●Ninen-zaka, Sannen-zaka


Sannen-zaka and Ninen-zaka is Japanese historic cityscape.

A person is many places even in the daytime, but is full here sithout changing on the day shen Kiyomizu-dera opens at night.

The shops usually closes at night,but opens tonight.


Shop of the Yatuhashi. The Yatuhashi of Nishio-no-Yatuhashi is my recommended shop. Much sampling is possible, too.

It is a recommended souvenir.


●Entry reception


The entrance reception is in front of Nio-mon-gate stairs.

It is a popular temple, but does not line up very much.

It becomes the popular photography spot to photograph the Nio-mon gate here.


●Rays of the night sky

The sky of Kiyomizu-dera Temple can confirm rays.

This expresses light of the mercy of the Kannon.

May confirm even this blog with some photographs.

●Three-storied pagoda


Three-storied pagoda folds of one of the highlight of  Kiyomizu-dera Temple.

It is lighted up, and cinnabar red is beautiful.

●Zuigu-do hall


There is a popular spot over the darkness in the basement of Zuigu-do. It is popular even at night without changing.

●Priest’s staff of iron


It is the priest’s staff of two big things and small things which a Buddhist ascetic used.

The big staff is too heavy for a Japanese man. When if you are proud of power, I challenge it?

●Hondo(The main hall of a Buddhist)


Hondo inside is popular even at night without changing by prayer with noon. I can watch many Buddha statues inside.

Trees are lighted up from Hondo mezzanine and are fantastic and are beautiful.

I see Okuno-in very well from stage of Hondo. Unfortunately Okuno-in is under construction.

●Gosyuin place

清水寺・御朱印所(夜間) 清水寺・御朱印

I can get Gosyuin even at the time of an exhibition by night.

There is the place between Hondo and Okuno-in.


Okuno-in is under costruction now. However, the entrance is possible without a problem.

Though here photographs the stage of the Kiyomizu temple, it is the best spot.

●Otowa Waterfall


It is the waterfall shich the name of Kiyomizu-dera was derived from.

This place is popular without canging even by night with noon.



It is restaurant of the Kiyomizu-dera precincts. It does not open at night, but usually opens todya.

I can eat in a traditional Japanese room. Take off the shoes, and let’s get nervous.

●Cherry blossom trees at evening


We are not readily identified as a cherry tree even if lighted up in the night.

The cherry tree by the pond of the interval to return from a waterfall of Otowa to Nio-mon is wonderful.

●Final Notes

Travel in Japan, Ithink that there are many people visiting Kiyomizu-dera.

In that case, I think that there is much Lunch, but, please come at night if a timing is correct. You may get a splendid impression.

The night visit of Kiyomizu-dera is time-limited, but there are several times for one year.
