「絶景かな、絶景かな」という歌舞伎のセリフが有名な高さ22mもある三門が出迎えてくれます。

It is famous by Kabuki, Japanese traditional theater art, that the view from the 22-meter-high gate is amazing.

奥へ進んでいくと、京都市内へ琵琶湖から水を引くための水路閣があり、今やどことなくレトロな雰囲気が味を出しています。

Going inside, you will see waterway bridge that is for water from Lake Biwa to Kyoto City. Now it turned to be good looking after some decades.
