Otowa-no-taki, Kiyomizu Dera

Visitors drinking from the three streams of the Otowa waterfall, underneath the main hall of Kiyomizu Dera. The streams are supposed to confer wisdom, health, and longevity.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Oh... then I really need a few gallons of that stuff :-0 Super shot Daryl, have you drunk yet ?

@Observing: Cheers Mike! I haven't drunk from there, no... the line was too long. They need an extra stream for 'patience'.
