Kyoto Aqueduct (I)

By chowe328
Kyoto Aqueduct or Suirokaku Aqueduct is a (Western style) aqueduct that cuts through the grounds of Nanzen-ji temple in Kyoto...It was built in the Meiji-era (1889) — a time when Japan was rapidly modernizing (and Westernizing)..Kyoto resident's resisted the project. Many felt that Western style architecture had no place in a ancient Japanese capital. With time residents grew fond of the structure. Japanese architecture has always been influence by foreign cultures. Many of Kyoto's temples and shrines are heavily influenced by Chinese and Indian designs...The Aqueduct carries water from Lake Biwa to supply Kyoto with water and electricity. []
