Japan Cheapo: "The Legends of Kyoto's Kiyomizu-dera"

Last October, we took a commuter train to Kyoto Station (where Gamera and Irys battled in Gamera 3) to tour the city.

After arriving, we found a bus tour company whose offices were in the station and signed up for their half-day tour of Kyoto. One of the stops on the tour was Kiyomizu-dera. Kiyomizu-dera was briefly featured in Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II in 1993.

Japan Cheapo has posted a new article on Kiyomizu-dera, "The Legends of Kyoto's Kiyomizu-dera". If you are planning to visit Kyoto, or just want to know a little about Kiyomizu-dera, the article is worth a read.

Simply put, Kiyomizu-dera is the most popular attraction in Kyoto and no matter when you decide to go it will be crowded. Nonetheless, it is a must-see whenever you are in the city and you may come to severely regret not going if you would decide to skip it for those reasons alone.
