Suirokaku is the nineteenth-century aqueduct that carries water from Lake Biwa to the city of Kyoto. It passes through the grounds of Nanzen-ji temple. The temple itself was built in 1386, and stands at the southern end of the Philosopher's Path, (Tetsugaku no michi). The interior houses priceless works of art, including wall paintings of the Kanō School. The abbot's quarters (hōjō) contain a beautiful rock garden, as well as a waterfall and pond garden. Moss and lichen are found throughout the quiet temple grounds.
