Ponce De Leon should have sailed to Japan for the Fountain of Youth. As winter recedes and spring sweeps across the Land of the Rising Sun, thousands of Japanese head to Kyoto’s Kiyomizu, the Temple of Pure Water. Founded in 780 at the Otawa Waterfalls, the temple is a goliath house of worship, perched majestically against the mountainside. On the wooden promenade, lean over the edge for an unrivaled view of ancient Kyoto. Inside the main hall, notice the architecture devoid of nails. Then, follow the crowd past guardian dragons and a sacred gateway to where the falls spill over the rocks. Cold from its high-peak source and crystal clear, the water flows down in three streams, offering cleansing for longevity, success, and love. Queue up with retired businessmen, young brides, and anxious college students. Take a cup and drink—but choose one! Tasting all three is considered greedy.
