The Waters of Japan


This waterfall at the Kiyomizudera Temple in Kyoto, Japan is meant to give health and longevity to those who drink from its waters. However, those who are greedy and try to drink from all three streams will be cursed with bad luck and ill health. Luckily, the hoards of tourists and spiritual seekers who now crowd around the falls, make getting just one drink challenge enough. It’s been over a year since I’ve had a drink from one of the streams…so far, so good!

What health superstitions have you heard of? Would you give them a try?
