First was Yasaka shrine, a great Vermillion coloured one walking distance for our hotel.
The Kiyomizu temple was founded in 798, and its present buildings were constructed in 1633, ordered by the Tokugawa Iemitsu. There is not a single nail used in the entire structure. It takes its name from the waterfall within the complex, which runs off the nearby hills.
|The slopes are covered in Cherry trees so would be a magnificent sight with them lit up.|
We walked to Nijo Castle, because although we had seen Nagoya Castle this time we could go and look at the rooms with ancient wall screens.
The next stop was Kinkakuji Beautiful!!
Then we walked down to Roanji Garden, stopping for lunch of Ramen on the way
This is a Zen garden but I don't think the throng of tourist were doing much contemplation; But it was a very peaceful spot!
