Kiyomizu-dera is perhaps the most beloved of Kyoto's temples. Kiyomizudera literally means "Pure Water Temple". It was founded in 798 and rebuilt in 1633 by the third Tokugawa shogun. The temple occupies an exalted spot on Mount Otowa, with its main hall constructed over a cliff.
The temple precincts contain fifteen buildings designated as Important Cultural Properties, including the inner Temple (Okunoin), Amida Buddha Hall (Amidado), and the three-tiered pagoda, seen here.

Il y'a une très belle harmonie de couleurs entre le premier plan et toutes ces tonalités automnales et ce ciel bleu très pale presque désaturé.
Un joli contraste très agréable à l'oeil.
