The streets winding their way up the hill to Kiyomizu Dera in Kyoto are crowded with souvenir shops, restaurants and tea shops. The area gets very crowded at times, but there's always a great atmosphere.

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!

Wow it's fantastic such a great divide between the crowd and the tree/mountain line in the background :)

hee, this couldnt fit on my screen so i saw the top half first, yes pretty tranquile. Suddenly, lots of people!

This reminds me of the anime Bleach. The steepness and the roofs at different levels as a result captures me
