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...More

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.

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.

Being in the water business was great to see an aqueduct still working in Kyoto. The garden located up the stairs behind the structure was wonderful and well worth the extra yen to enter!

Extremely pretty during the fall. Walk and walk some more... Timing good photos can be a challenge when there are many people

This is a nice area to stroll around. Next to Nanzenji Temple this is worth a visit when in this area. Easy access by subway. 5 minute walk.

Quiet and very tranquil place to walk around and tour...the water way is reminiscent to the Aqueduct in Rome.
