The shrine is also a short walk from train stations Inari (JR) and Fushimi-Inari (Keihan). The famous Buddhist temple Tofukuji is very close to this station. The entrance is marked by a large vermilion Torii, which is guarded by sculptures of foxes. You don’t have to pay anything for the entry as many other free atractions in Kyoto.
Kiyomizu-Dera Temple with a Magical Waterfall
Kiyomizu-Dera refers to several temples located in the eastern part of Kyoto. It is one of the most popular and most visited monuments in all of Kyoto. Inside the complex is the Otowa-no-Taki waterfall, which is divided into three springs. Each spring symbolizes something different; the first denotes health, the other longevity, and the last, achievement in study. Every visitor tries to drink from at least one spring to achieve happiness in their desired area of life. The main temple offers spectacular views of the surrounding landscape from a 13-meter-high wooden terrace. During the Edo period, it was believed that you would fulfil any wish if you survive the jump from such a terrace. Altogether, over 200 people jumped here, but unfortunately, not everyone survived. Nowadays, headless jumps to the abyss have been abandoned, and people only come here to drink from the magic springs.
