Kiyomizu-dera - Koyto, Japan

  Kiyomizu-dera - Koyto, Japan

I was fortunate in 2011 to tour Japan for two weeks as a Keizai Koho Fellow.  We started our experience in Koyto and one of the first days visited the Kiyomizu-dera Shrine just outside the city. The shrine dates back to around 800 A.D.  After climbing to the top of the hill to the shrine we followed a trail that led behind the shrine.  

A rainstorm was moving in when I took this photo. I really like the way in which the photo shows the contrast between the ancient shrine and the modern city of Koyto below.
