Kiyomizu Kannon-do

A quiet Buddhist temple in Ueno Park

On a bright May weekday afternoon in a quiet corner of Ueno Park, the peace at Kiyomizu Kannon-do (Kiyomizu Kannon Temple) was uninterrupted despite the steady stream of visitors to the temple. Kiyomizu Kannon-do in Ueno was built in the image of Kiyomizu-dera in Kyoto on a smaller scale. This temple is now recognized as a national treasure and one of the oldest surviving temples in Tokyo. It's worth a visit if you’re in the park and want to avoid the crowds for a while.
