The Temple of Pure Water

Kiyiomizudera, one of the major temples in Kyoto "floats" over red autumn foliage thanks to its stage built on wooden pillars, bringing it about 12 meters high over the ground.

This year's red foliage wasn't actually the most impressive one. It had suddenly got cold then the temperature rose again, preventing the leaves from turning into the usually fiery red that makes Kyoto such an incredible city to visit during autumn.
