East Kyoto is the best-preserved and most charming part of the city with a number of significant sites within walking distance of one another. You can easily spend the best part of a day exploring the temples and shrines in this area alone. We’ve put together an easy to follow itinerary to get the most out of your day.

Kiyomizudera (Pure Water Temple)
Start your day with a trip to one of Japan’s most revered and ancient temples. Nestled into the wooded hills east of Kyoto with views across the city, Kiyomizuderu is surrounded by a sea of maple and cherry trees, and from the temple’s famous wooden balcony you can watch the worshippers at the Otowa Waterfall below.
