Kiyomizu hall from under hill


One and half century after Hiroshige depiction, a time travel to Edo period is possible thanks to the revival of moon pine by Tokyo gardeners.


The Kannon hall is designated a national important cultural property. It is one of the few buildings of the ancient Kan’eiji temple complex to have survived the 1868 Battle of Ueno, a devastating clash between troops loyal to the shogunate and forces led by the Satsuma and Chōshū domains.
