    Graveyard on the walk up to Kiyomizu Temple

    Japanese Graveyard

    A little unusual, but we found this by accident. Rather than following the main route up to the Kiyomizu Temple with all the usual stalls selling souvenirs we found a path at the bottom of the hill just by the main freeway intersection that took us up the hill through a graveyard.

    Space being at a premium in Japan the graveyards are built on the side of hills/mountains where they can't build houses. Walking up through the graveyard was very peaceful and it was interesting to see the wonderful variety of grave stones and quite a few crows hanging around.
