清水寺風情   Kyoto Kiyomizu Dera snapshots

清水寺是訪京遊客必遊之地。2008年秋也來過, 一樣的擁擠, 不同的是那天下雨, 而這次是大太陽, 都不是最理想的天色。清水寺雖然也有些紅葉, 但京都市內比這裡更好的地方很多, 這次來是為朋友作伴, 隨便拍了一堆雜七雜八的照片。

維基百科: 清水寺是一座位於日本京都府京都市東山區清水的寺院,於778年(寶龜9年)前後由延鎮上人起造。清水寺的山號為音羽山,主要供奉千手觀音,原本屬於法相宗這一宗派但目前已獨立,成為北法相宗的大本山。清水寺與北山鹿苑寺(金閣寺)、嵐山天龍寺等同為京都境內最著名的名勝古蹟,一年四季前來朝拜的香客或來訪的觀光客是絡驛不絕。除此之外,清水寺也與石山寺(滋賀縣大津市),長谷寺(奈良縣櫻井市)等寺廟並列,自古以來就一直以嗣奉觀音的廟宇而為人所熟知,也是西國三十三箇所(在關西地區參拜33所觀音廟的巡訪活動)中第16所寺廟。自平安時代以來,就經常出現於日本文學作品當中。1994年,清水寺以身為古都京都的文化財之一部分,列名至世界文化遺產中。

Kiyomizu Dera is a famous temple in Kyoto that it is a must-see for tourists, I have come here many times. It is so popular (=so crowded) that I don’t think it is a good place for picture-taking during the foliage season. However, I had to join a group of friends and tried to focus my camera on something different.

DSC_2169-2維基百科: 清水寺為棟樑結構式寺院。正殿寬19米,進深16米,大殿前為懸空的「舞台」,由139根高數十米的大圓木支撐。寺院建築氣勢宏偉,結構巧妙,未用一根釘子。寺中六層炬木築成的木台為日本所罕有。舞台的建築,巍峨地聳立於陡峭的懸崖上、極其美妙。日本有一諺語:「從清水的舞台上跳下去」(清水の舞台から飛び降りる),用以形容破釜沈舟做某事。

Wikipedia: The popular expression “to jump off the stage at Kiyomizu” is the Japanese equivalent of the English expression “to take the plunge”. This refers to an Edo period tradition that held that, if one were to survive a 13m jump from the stage, one’s wish would be granted. Two hundred thirty-four jumps were recorded in the Edo period and, of those, 85.4% survived.The practice is now prohibited.
