This is a travel guide or just info book for Kyoto, done in wood-block printing in 1780. It is #3- temples. I didn’t see 1 or 2 in the shop but this would be the one I’d want anyway. It has printed drawings of kiyomizudera and the “dai” mountain.

The history teachers at both my schools flipped out.
