vol.112:The Ancient Aqueduct Location

When in Kyoto be sure to visit the large brick aqueduct that passes through the Nanzenji Temple grounds. Built during the Meiji Period (1868-1912), the aqueduct is part of a canal system that was constructed to carry water and goods between Kyoto and Lake Biwa in neighboring Shiga Prefecture. The aqueduct is 93 meters long, 4 meters wide, and 14 meters high. Paths run alongside the canal that leads into the surrounding forest. This Suirokaku said to have been designed by reference aqueduct bridge of the Roman Empire. We bet you never thought you ‘d be in Rome while visiting Japan. The figure of the beautiful arch gets so popular and many tourists take some commemorative photo.

KoI Service tries our best to update the latest information, however, it might change day by day. Also, the article we uploaded is for tourists to enjoy seeing the view during the stay home. We hope every tourist will come back to Kyoto after the situation settles down.
