Kyoto - Kiyomizu Temple

We made our first trip to Kyoto at the weekend. I'm ashamed to say it as we've been here almost a year now and have never made it there until now. Of course, we chose the hottest time to go and it was pretty unbearable at times, but Kyoto is a lovely city and there is so much to see and do. We got the Shinkansen (bullet train) there, which was a fun journey after a bit of argy bargy with the cost of it all - it's not cheap, but you do get there in half the time. We stayed in a nice hotel in the centre and after dropping our bags off, we headed to the famous Kiyomizu temple in the Higashi-dori district. My friend Susan had given us a fab walking tour to do and so we were able to follow that without much hassle. The temple was stunning and set in the hillside overlooking Kyoto, in beautiful grounds.
