One of the more popular temples in Kyoto, the “Pure Water Temple” sits atop a mountain and boasts amazing views of the city.
This temple is home to the Otowa Waterfall, which is said to bring health, longevity and wisdom if one drinks from the three channels of water. Among the several shrines on the temple grounds is Jishu-jinja Shrine, dedicated to the god of love and matchmaking. The two stones in front of the shrine are placed for those seeking luck in their love lives. If one can successfully navigate from one stone to the other with his or her eyes closed, that person will be granted true love.
