"Philosopher's Path" Philosopher's Path Tip by SallyM
Philosopher's Path, Kyoto: 20 reviews and 32 photos
This is a pleasant walk along the side of the canal, from Ginkaku-ji to Nanzen-ji temple, passing other temples en route
It is called the Philosopher's Walk or Path after Professor Nishida Kitaro (1870-1945) who used to walk this route every day.
It's particularly pretty in cherry blossom season. There are plenty of places to stop off to purchase souvenirs or have refreshments.
The route is only about a mile long, but it takes a while because of all the stops along the way.
Directions: Higashiyama district. Start from either Ginkaku-ji or Nanzen-ji.
