Kyoto is an attractive city in Japan. I would say this city is weird, you may meet very traditional Japan Diva who are difficult to find in other cities in Japan. You will feel the time is turned back to historical periods.
Kyoto was Japan's capital city from the period of 794 to 1868. Kyoto was ruined over the centuries. During the World War II, atomic bomb was dropped down to this city.
This city is now a seventh largest city with a population of 1.4 millions.
According to its history, you must expect to see countless historic value structures. So, you must visit temples in Kyoto, such as Kiyomizudera temple (GPS: 34.995928, 135.784789
). Kiyomuzudera was established in year 780 on the site of Otowa Waterfall, the name of it derived from the pure water fall. This temple was associated with an oldest school of Japanese Buddhism. In year 1994, it was added to the list of UNESCO world heritage sites.
The Otowa Waterfall is located at the base of Kiyomizudera's main hall. This waterfall has three separated currents, each stream water has a rumor, one stream water of them is about cause longevity, another one is about success at school and the last one is about fortune of love. Visitors would drink the water, but Japanese may recognize you are a greedy guy if you drink water from all three streams.
