Kiyomizu Dera, east of Kyoto, is one of the most famous and celebrated temples in Japan. Kiyomizu means “pure water” and is built around the Otowa Waterfall. As you ascend the wooded hill to the temple, perched high against the sky, you can stop at the Rakusho Tea House and enjoy their beautiful koi pond and gardens while sipping ocha.

This striking merino scarf in a single hank of Running On Yarn’s Koi Pond colorway, with its glittery strand of cobweb thin Stellina running through it, is as golden as the sunlight shining on Kiyomizu Dera’s pagoda roof, and as blue as the sky behind it. With a string of mother-of-pearl fish dangling from its edge, its light and breezy drape is graced with glints of white and a touch of weight that recalls a crystal waterfall in the Japanese hills.
