Introduce Kiyomizu-dera Temple.
Kiyomizu-dera (清水寺), known more fully as Otowa-san Kiyomizu-dera (音羽山清水寺) is an independent Buddhist temple in eastern Kyoto.
The temple is part of the Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto (Kyoto, Uji and Otsu Cities) UNESCO World Heritage site. (It should not be confused with Kiyomizu-dera in Yasugi, Shimane, which is part of the 33-temple route of the Chūgoku 33 Kannon Pilgrimage through western Japan.)
In Heian times, Kiyomizu-dera was the closest major pilgrimage site to the capital, Kyoto, and probably the most popular.
It was situated in an area then known generally as the Eastern Hills (Higashiyama).

In the Evening Faces chapter of The Tale of Genji, the object of Genji's affections dies in mysterious circumstances and he has a secret funeral for her at a small temple near Kiyomizu.
On the way back, the grief-stricken Genji falls from his horse at the Kamo River and Koremitsu has to make a supplication to Kiyomizu before they are able to continue.

Kiyomizu-dera is the 16th temple on the Saigoku Kannon pilgrimage and five of its halls form part of the Rakuyo Pilgrimage.

The popular Jishu-jinja Shrine is located on the temple grounds, and both shrine and temple are packed with tourists and pilgrims every day of the week.

(The Shinto deity Okuninushi no Mikoto and his messenger rabbit at the Jishu-jinja shrine beside Kiyomizudera can help in matters of the heart.)
