Kiyomizu-dera Temple

The Kiyomizudera Temple is a Buddhist temple to the east of the city. The complex was constructed in mid-1600s. The amazing thing about this place is that the construction did not use a single nail in the entire structure.

It takes its name from the waterfall within the complex, which runs off the nearby hills. Kiyomizu means "clear water", or "pure water".
