Description on the reverse of the greeting card: Kiyomizu Temple was founded in 1798 and the structure, still standing today, was impressively built without a single nail. The popular expression 'to jump off the stage at Kiyomizu', is the Japanese equivalent of the English expression 'to take the plunge'. This refers to an Edo period tradition held that, if one were to survive a 13 metre jump from the stage, one's wish would be granted. 234 jumps were recorded in the Edo period. The practice is now prohibited!

This card is made from quality heavy weight luxurious pearlescent paper, giving a beautiful shimmering effect, elegantly finished with rounded corners.
