We weren't expecting a turn of the century aqueduct- but were enchanted by it and climbing to the top to walk along the rushing water was fascinating, unique, and peaceful in the forest.

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 there.

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.

Nanzenji Temple is the temple I chose at the end of the Philosopher's Path route.

Even though Nanzenji is not as popular as other temples in Kyoto but it's absolutely a great temple to explore, and not often visited by foreign tourists. Some people call Nanzenji Kyoto's secret treasure

Entering the large temple area, it will find the giant Sanmon gate which is one of the three giant temple gates in Japan, beautiful Japanese garden Hojo park and old water channel that drains water from the Biwako Sosui canal which is old.

Access by bus no 5 or walking from Philoshoper Path in the end Route.

We passed by this temple as we were walking the Philosophers path. We got in and paid the entrance fee but never found out what the tickets are for...no-one checked them or we did not find the area that was paid. Otherwise, there was a small garden we went around and a park behind that we decided to skip.

Not a big deal, but a good photo op. We stopped along the way on a rickshaw ride. I wouldn't go out of my way to go see it though.

This is a very impressive aqueduct on the grounds of Nanzenji temple. It wasn't crowded at all! I recommend standing at one end of the aqueduct and taking a photo looking through all the arches... beautiful architecture!

This temple complex is vast. The aqueduct itself is so out of place within Japanese temples, but there it is. There is much to be seen and a good end to a lot of walking.

This place is a hidden gem and a nice refresh from all the similar-like temple grounds in Kyoto. The biggest surprise is the towering Roman-inspired aqueduct in the middle of the temple grounds and you can see free of charge. It's quiet and peaceful here with moss and maple trees all around.

We tried climbing to the top of the aqueduct, but construction hoarding blocked the path up. Maybe next time!

This aquaduct is over one hundred years old, made of brick, and worth making your way to see if you are visiting Nanzenji Temple. When I was there, some people were using the arches in the supports for a portrait photoshoot. You can walk up the stairs and along a path the runs parallel to it for a way, though I didn't go far.
