The popular expression "to jump off from the stage at Kiyomizu" is the Japanese equivalent of English expression
"to take the plunge. " This refers to an Edo-period tradition that held that if one were to survive a 13-meter jump
from the stage, one's wished would be granted. During the Edo period, 234 jumps were recorded, and of those,
85.4% were survived. The practice is now prohibited. Beneath the hall is the Otowa waterfall, where three
channels of water fall into a pond. Visitors can catch and drink the water, which is believed to have wish-granting

The reroofing work of the Main Hall, which began in February 2017, was completed at the end of 2019 and
the scaffolding structure that had enveloped the Main Hall was removed in February 2020. Thanks to your
understanding for the extended inconvenience during the repair period, the roof of the Main Hall has now been
completely restored with new hinoki (Japanese cypress) bark thatch for the first time in 50 years.
