🏯Never thought i would come back to Kiyomizu Temple after 6 years.
⛩ When I visited Kiyomizu in 2012 i was overwhelmed by it’s magnificent beauty. I remember standing on the main balcony looking out at the orange mountains, orange trees and orange skyline with amazement. We even visited a small shrine nearby the main temple and sat there, had a cup of green tea while writing our wishes on small wooden boards. All those memories are vague, since it was when i was just 12 and it has been 6 years already, but definitely unerasable.
🌁 Sadly, this time when I came back the temple precinct was under reconstruction 🏗 Pretty much every tower and shrine was partially blocked, including the main balcony where you are supposed to look down and enjoy the view. Also, I couldn’t find the nearby shrine that I visited in 2012, so I was a little but upset. But still, i did love to come back to Kiyomizu this time. Will go back in a near future because i want to enjoy the temple view when it’s been done with the reconstruction.
