  • The old aqueduct remained at site next to Nanzenji and was popular among visitors. It was nice to take photos around and sometimes you need to wait for a while if you really want to make a good post....  more »
  • A bit up the hill from the temple is this aqueduct, how and why I don't know. But it is definitely in place anyway. Up the slight hill you can visit the water source.  more »

  • Found this treasure whilst looking for things to see and do away from the crowds in Kyoto. Well worth a visit! An interesting canal system, impressive viaduct, stunning gardens, temple worth visiting and an easy walk to the zoo, museum of art and train stations.
  • A truly Zen setting n highly recommended. Located within the Nanzenjifukuchicho temple, it’s an aqueduct built in ancient Roman architecture styling. It’s defunct now n the remains are purely for viewing. It’s a serene area, moss covered n lush with vegetation. Together with the tall trees, cool temperatures and a small stream of water that provides a truly scenic spot for quiet contemplation. The area has clearly been conserved n maintained but much of the original look has been preserved. It’s a unique structure to find in a forested area at a Japanese Zen Temple site but truly a gem, well worth a closer examination. Highly recommended👍
