With a sheer drop of 75 meters, Kiyomizu Falls is a beautiful sight to behold, and the hike through the forest reveals fantastic scenery. Next to the waterfall is a stone monument, dedicated in 1787 to a samurai warrior who went to the falls to pray for his master’s health, but died from the cold while doing so. Kiyomizu Falls has a long history of being a place of worship and prayer. The water is pristine, and if you stop by the nearby town of Ogi, which gets its water from the same source, be sure to try the local carp, which are caught from these waters.
