  • I went to see the Nanzenji Waterway Temple, which I have been interested in for a long time. There were few people on weekdays, and I felt a unique atmosphere. If you climb the stairs, you can see the water actually flowing into the waterway.

  • I was curious about the bridge-like structure at the back of Nanjenji, but it is said that the water flowing waterway was created to bring the water from the lake to Kyoto, which is said to flow through a stream next to the philosophy path.

  • 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👍
