Jishu Shrine located above the main hall of Kiyomizu-dera, is a shrine dedicated to Okuninushi, a god of love and matchmaking. The shrine is often called the ‘Cupid of Japan’ and is famous for its pair of love stones which have a cool legend attached to them. You can read all about it on my latest article for Taiken Japan.

The impressive main hall of Kiyomizu-dera in Kyoto is designated as a national treasure, and was built without the use of a single nail in its construction. It has withstood the test of time and the famous wooden balcony offers fantastic views of the nearby hills and city of Kyoto.

The Akita Kanto Matsuri is a visually stunning festival that is one of Japan’s most spectacular summer festivals. It features hundreds of giant bamboo poles with dozens of paper lanterns attached to the end. The giant poles are skilfully balanced by more than 160 men participating in the festival.

Kiyomizu-dera is one of the most famous temples in Kyoto, and my personal favourite. Located in the Higashiyama district of the historic city of Kyoto, the temple offers everything you want in a Kyoto experience with impressive temple architecture, quaint shops selling local handicrafts, spectacular views, sacred water and the possibility of finding true love.

The ancient temple was first built in 778 with the current buildings a 1633 reconstruction. The impressive main hall of the temple is designated as a national treasure, and was built without the use of a single nail in its construction.
