Kiyomizu Temple

The “Stage of Kiyomizu”

The “Stage of Kiyomizu” is in front of the main hall of Kiyomizu-Temple.

The height of the stage overhanging from the main hall is about 13 meters, which is equivalent to a four-story building.This stage is a place for dedicating performing arts to the Kannon Bodhisattva, and traditional Japanese performing arts have been performed in this place.

Making a bold decision is called “jumping off the stage of Kiyomizu”, but in the Edo period, many people actually jumped off, so a ban on jumping was issued by Kyoto Prefecture.

In December 2020, the stage renovation work was completed.
