Today's featured textile design is "Canal"
Taking a walk every morning through Nanzenji,
located in a small neighborhood where the canal water flows towards,
The echo of its murmur as it flows
along the road I am walking, resounds in my heart.
The villas around this area also draw from
this canal's water to make a small pond in their yards.
This Kyoto canal, made by tunneling an aqueduct from Lake Biwa
through the mountains, draws water
all the way to Kyoto
providing to Kyoto its tap water.
