Kiyomizu dera and its 3-story pagoda - 1

This cool shrine and pagoda is practically in my backyard here in Shimane-ken. Some friends and I stopped by and checked it out on our way out to Tottori-ken to see the new Star Wars movie. Yes, I cross borders to see movies at a decent theatre and pay about $18 for the privilege. (A movie ticket here costs 1800 yen)
That's Trevor, Chris, Emily and Signe climbing the steps to the Pagoda. I joined them after snapping this pic.
