Each time we visit Kyoto , we make sure that we go to Nanzen-ji . Apart from the temple , it is always a pleasure to stroll around the gardens , even in wet weather .

This temple has beautiful maple and ginko trees that turn beautiful colors in autumn. The temple is impressive and has beautiful grounds.
The temple grounds are quite wide, and the main attractions are separately charged for entry. In fact, one of the main free attractions is the aqueduct, the one unique feature of this temple as compared to others in Kyoto.
