Kyoto (Nanzen-ji Temple)

Filed under: Domestic, Kansai, Trips — myyearinjapan @ 8:58 am

At the other end of the Philosopher’s Path from the Silver Pavilion is Nanzen-ji temple (南禅寺). One reason Nanzen-ji is popular among Japanese is for it’s aqueduct, which seems a little out of place on the grounds of a Buddhist temple.
