Kiyomizu Waterfall

Time travel in tranquility

 By Bradford Pomeroy   Sep 15, 2014

Kiyomizu-no-taki is a waterfall in Ogi City of Saga Prefecture. Next to the waterfall is Kenryu-ji, a Buddhist temple built in 1627. The whole area is infused with incredible statues of Buddhist deities, shrines, and an immensely beautiful backdrop of lush vegetation. Once you reach the base of the waterfall, you’ll find a gazebo where you can relax or have a picnic. This is an idyllic setting to take time away from your busy schedule and unwind for a few hours.

Thank you for the information, Bradford! I couldn't understand how to get to that place. Can you, please, explain? I don't see any public transport on the map.

Thank you Mandy. It's truly a special place. I was fortunate to visit the light festival and am currently working on a photo essay about it. Unfortunately, it was only from November 15-23. Hopefully you can make it next time as it's quite an ethereal experience.

What a beautiful destination! Do you know what month they hold the light festival?

Beautiful place to take a walk. I love the weathered look of all the shrines with the natural backdrop. Looks really peaceful.
