The religion of Kiyomizu-dera Temple was a Minister of Justice sect at first, and 兼宗 did the Shingon Buddhism from the middle of Heian era. I belong to the Shingon Buddhism Daigo group at one time early in the Meiji era, but return to the Minister of Justice sect in (1885) in 1885.
立宗 did north Minister of Justice sect, and then chief priest Ryokei Onishi became independent from the Minister of Justice sect in (1965) in 1965.
Modern times begin, and Ryokei Onishi (from 1875 to 1983) who was chief priest of Kofuku-ji Temple, the Minister of Justice sect pipe head in (1914) takes office as a chief abbot (the chief priest) of Kiyomizu-dera Temple in 1914.

In Onishi, Kiyomizu-dera Temple chief abbot is placed with duty, "a father of the interest" for nearly 70 years until I die at (1983), 107 years old in 1983.
Onishi started two times a month of north Minister of Justice sect Buddhism culture lectures in (1966) in 1966 and established a friendship Buddhism association in the daytime in (1974) in 1974 and made an effort for an international exchange through the Buddhism, a peace movement, cultural activities.

In 2015, picture scroll "Kiyomizu-dera Temple Heisei omen picture scroll" produced for ten years was completed and was dedicated. With the whole volume which I described 1200 from the days of creation of the temple to completion of "the great repair of the Heisei" in, it is 65m in total length.
The drawing is Mutsumasa Hakozaki of the professor emeritus at Kyoto Saga university of fine arts in Japanese painters. I brought back traditional technique such as drawing silk and the back coloring and was drawn.
Unlike "Kiyomizu-dera Temple omen picture scroll of the Muromachi era when a lot of war was drawn ," it was pictured under the theme of the figure of the common people who supported Kiyomizu-dera Temple which repeated destruction by fire and the rebuilding many times.
About 25-minute walk from in about 22-minute walk from Keihan Electric Railway Keihan Main Line "Kiyomizu-Gojo Station" getting off or about 25-minute walk from "Gion-Shijo Station" getting off "Osamu Shimizu" or "Article 5 slope" bus stop (Kyoto municipal bus 80.86. express 100. express 106. express 22.214.171.124 system, Keihan Bus 83.83A, 84, 84C .85.85A .86.86A, 86B .87.87A, 87B, 88, 88B, 88C system) getting off.
It is near that the neighborhood bus stop goes from via the Article 5 slope or "Osamu Shimizu" via Shimizu Hill from "the Article 5 slope", but, in the five articles Hill, there is much traffic of the sightseeing bus, and there is much traffic of a taxi and the public car in the spring water Hill (Toru Matsubara) to the junction with the five articles Hill.
It is made a detour a little, but there are few cars, and the north side which passed Toru Yasaka who turns to the east side at the traffic light is tasteful on a stone pavement way while I watch a tower of Yasaka of the outlook on law temple, but the bus from the Kyoto Station area drains guidance broadcast to promote the getting off of the passenger of the Kiyomizu-dera Temple area at five articles Hill bus stop from the Osamu Shimizu bus stop daringly immediately. Because this has many passengers to take from the Article 5 slope, it is measures to avoid an Article 5 slope and the congestion of the bus between both bus stops of Osamu Shimizu.
