  Philosopher's Walk
by bladedragon

Philosopher's Walk is a 2km walk along a small river.
The lanscape should be beautiful during early Spring time when Cherry blossom can be seen along the river.
There are also quite a number of temples and shrines along the way, but most of them are quite a distance from the river itself.
You can start either from Nanzenji or Ginkakuji.
