This beautiful and historic temple can be reached from the nearest subway station, Keage Station on the Tozai Line (about 5 minutes walk) or alternatively you can take a bus from Kyoto Station. On the right side of the temple, you can see a a large brick aqueduct that passes through the temple grounds.

Exactly what I say in the title. Visit along with Nanzenji and Keage Incline. Interesting place. Not too crowded in the morning. If you head up the slope behind the aqueduct on the right you can follow the aqueduct to Keage Incline and Keage subway station.

You don’t often see such pieces or architectural beauty around. It is still working and this aqueduct is a stunning sight. Great for picture taking and the area where it is located is stunning and natural. Absolute stunning to witness.

The ancient aqueduct structure cuts through the east side of the temple still active to these days, brings water and electricity to Kyoto from Lake Biwa.

Little Boy is amazed by the sacred stones that sit on the ground of growing mosses and matsu trees. We meet up with Yoshida-san, a local photographer offers to help us to snap a family photo and pretty much impressed by the camera.

We have visited Nanzenji Temple by early April and strolled around the aqueduct as well. The aqueduct was still active and nearly all the tourists come to take photos for memory too. Recommended.
