Add this to my venues

Located halfway up Otowa Mountain in the eastern district of Kyoto City, Kiyomizu-dera is a historic temple that was established in 778, pre-dating the establishment of Kyoto as the capital of Japan. Kiyomizu-dera (the temple of clear water) takes its name from the waterfall which flows within the temple complex, fed from a mountain spring. In 1994, it was recognized as an UNESCO World Heritage Site as part of the Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto.
