We visited on a rainy day , which meant less crowded , which was great , peaceful beautiful and a surprising aqueduct !! Make time to spend here , it's worth it if you like temples and the serenity that comes along with it
Nanzenji temple is in the hills of Sakyo-Ku area of Kyoto; beautiful setting with lots of trees and pathways. There is an old aqueduct on the property, that is also interesting to see. The gardens are wonderful. Lovely place for a leisurely stroll.
Didnt visit the inside but the daimon provides nice overview of kyoto. There is a spectacular aquaduct which feels roman and is the first one iv seen in japan so far. Did a bicycle tour to visit this one. Recommended to rent a bike
