Absolutely worth a visit. The nature is stunning, the old temples very beautiful and breathtaking and the view is just beautiful. We visited during the rainy season (yesterday), but the rain wasn't an issue. It was so worth it.
We came with a pram and it was easily accessible. It's a little steep here and there. But
You can reach everything. Our toddler enjoyed running around and my infant peacefully slept. There were nappy changing stations.

very nice temple. I suggest you to go to this place during the cherry blossom season, because during the cherry blossom season the view of this temple is very good. many cherry blossoms are blooming. for those of you who like taking photos coming during the cherry blossom season is the most appropriate time !, this place itself is easy to reach and is not too far from the station. very beautiful place.

Construction on the main temple building has been completed 🙌

Kiyomizudera is such a wonderful place to visit again and again because it changes so much with the seasons! It is well known for hydrangeas in the summer! It's is a nice little walk up at shopping street on a hill. If you are going in the summer take it slow because it can get crowded and hot. Some of the ticket staff can speak a bit of English if you need and English informational brochures about the temple are available

The trip up the hill and the temples could easily be a half-day experience if you love history as much as I do.
