For first-time visitors to Kyoto, the world cultural heritage site of Kiyomizudera Temple is recommended as a must-see.
The best highlight of the Temple is the "Kiyomizudera stage" that it's famous for.
The spring sees cherry blossoms and fresh green leaves, and in the autumn the Temple rises at a height of 18 meters among a gradient of autumn colors, but looks lovely in any one of the four seasons. You can see all of Kyoto from the Kiyomizudera stage.
It's fantastic three-storied height as one of Japan's largest is another one of its many highlights.
Kiyomizuyaka, Chawanzaka, Nineizaka and Sannneizaka are also nearby, and so is known as a sightseeing spots in Kyoto in its abundance of souvenir shops.
