Nanzenji Suirokaku Reviews
以前から気になる南禅寺水路閣を見学しに行きました。 平日で人も少なく、独特の雰囲気を感じました。 階段を登ると実際に水路に水が流れてるのが見れます。 more »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.
난젠지 뒷편에 다리처럼 생긴 구조물이 있어 궁금했는데 물이 흐르는 수로라고 하네요.비와호라는 호수의 물을 교토로 끌어오기 위해 만들었는데, 이 수로각을 통해서 철학의 길 옆에 있는 개울가로 물이 흐른다고 하네요. more »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👍
