Nanzenji Suirokaku Reviews
明治時代に建造されたレンガ造りの水路です。琵琶湖から京都市内に水をひくために建てられ、今も現役で使われているそうです。南禅寺の境内にあるので、ここも観光スポットになっており、私が訪れた日も多くの観光客が記念写真を撮っていました。写真映えする趣きのある水路閣です。 more »It is a brick waterway built in the Meiji era. It is built to draw water from Lake Biwa to Kyoto City, and it seems to be used in active duty now. Because it is in the precincts of Nanzenji, it becomes a sightseeing spot here, too and a lot of tourists took the souvenir photograph on the day when I visited. This is a charming waterway with a picture.
난젠지를 세번 방문만에 처음으로 갔다. 오래되어 세월의 흔적이 있는 수로는 지금도 물이 가득 흐르고 있었다. 한바퀴 산책하기 좋았고 가는 길에 식당도 블루바틀 커피샵도 있어 좋았다. 여기서부터 철학의길로 걸어서 은각사까지 가는 코스 추천!! more »I went for the first time on a three-time visit to Nanzen-ji. The old-age channel was still full of water. It was nice to have a blue-bar coffee shop on the way. From here, you can walk through the path of philosophy and recommend the course to each four.
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👍
