the water bearer

This red brick aqueduct was built in 1890.
The raised aqueduct is part of the Lake Biwa Canal which is used to bring water from Lake Biwa to Kyoto (and which supplies 97% of the city’s water to this day).
The aqueduct is 93 meters long, 4 meters wide, and 14 meters high.
Even now water flows along it at a rate of 2 tons per second.
