Of course Kyoto is known for its Temples and shrines and rightfully so, but it is the philosopher's walk we took, that has stuck with me the most, even after a whole year has passed. We visited the lo...
We visited at the wrong time of year, and it is probably very beautiful in cherry blossom season. What we experienced was a very quiet path alongside little homes and shops and a small but very plain ...
More of a stroll than a walk but pleasant enough for an urban area
The path can get a little congested even in rainy weather and out of season so take a care to make way for people coming in the opposite direction. There are routes right beside the canal, sometimes o...
The Philosopher's Walk is located in the foothills of Dongshan Mountain. It is next to an artificial river channel and passes through Faran Monastery before ending at Ginkakuji Temple. It is a walking path about 1.5 kilometers long and was once selected as one of Japan's famous roads. Because the philosopher Nishida Kentaro often came here to think about the philosophy of life, the famous cherry trees lining the roadside were donated by the artist Mrs. Hashimoto.

Walking in the spring day in the path of philosophy
philosophy is a river along the river in the Zuojing District, because the philosopher Nishida Toro has often come here for a walk, thinking about life and got its name.
The road to philosophy has always been a cherry blossom attraction. The philosophy of not going to the previous impression should be the feeling of the long trees and the fluttering of the cherry blossoms like the Tokyo area. I was afraid of a lot of people, so I got up early, and I stepped on the bicycle to the philosophy road at 5 o'clock.
The imaginary philosophy is almost the same. Compared to Tokyo's Meguro, the philosophical way is more subtle and delicate. Meguro is slightly more atmospheric, and the ancient houses on both sides are even more Let the philosophical way have more of the beauty of Kyoto; the two sides of Meguro are more modern high-rises. The flowers of the
philosophy are mostly white petals. When there is no light, there are not too many (Fig. 6-9). After the sun rises, it is also the beginning of the philosophical path. It is the most beautiful ~ (Fig. 2-5) The sun shines on the cherry blossom leaves. Occasionally, there are one or two small ducks in the creek water that swim slowly in the posture of Niu Jun; the stone bridges all form a beautiful picture of Kyoto. Walking on the stone steps, as if you are like the philosopher Nishida, reviewing your past and thinking about the future.
The only regret is that riding a bicycle in the past, because it is a gravel road, not very good to ride a bicycle, there is no parking place nearby, looking for a long time to stop, you can slowly go through the path of philosophy. There are many amazing shrines around
, and it is very recommended to visit the temple. After watching the cherry blossoms and seeing a flower, the happiness of life is just that!

Kyoto-Kyoto, Zuojing-ku, Kyoto Prefecture
Taking advantage of Qingming, I bought a super expensive ticket and flew to Kyoto. I found that this time, people all over the world came to Japan to see cherry blossoms, including Japanese locals who also came out and even forced a shadow of the long-term domestic holiday.
"Philosophy Road" is a quiet path to the east of Kyoto. The river runs from south to north, and is lined with high-end Japanese-style houses. The river is full of cherry blossoms. In the season, it becomes a place for everyone to punch in. . However, the degree of congestion is very good compared to places like Hatoyama, and it is quite easy to produce. This is also the first time I feel the dreamlike wonderland brought by the continuous cherry blossoms.
There is also a "philosophical cafe", sit down and taste the coffee, watch people come and go, and the years are like this.
Reminder, there are many people, bring a telephoto, avoid the avoidable.
The philosophical path of Kyoto should be the place where the cherry blossoms of Kyoto are opened earlier every year. It is also a place where many people like to see cherry blossoms.
When the weather is fine, a small road, full of cherry blossoms, quiet river water, is particularly comfortable. There are some seats on the river bank, sitting there, watching the flying pigeons, the crowds coming and going, the spring atmosphere.
Just want to feel quiet or the best in the morning or evening. There have been more and more tourists in recent years, and there is always a hustle and bustle in the daytime, lacking a trace of silence. Although it does not affect the pat-and-shoot scenery, it is less the feeling that Nishidas few days of meditation are here.
The road to philosophy is a riverside path in Kyoto, which is very close to the Ginkakuji Temple and is suitable for play. The former philosopher Nishida Toshiro often came here for a walk and thought about the philosophy of life. It is named after the philosophy. The trails on the sides of the
river are full of cherry blossoms, and every spring is full of roads, so it is recommended as one of the most romantic walking trails. It is also a popular place for cherry blossom viewing in Kyoto.
The trail is not long. If you don't enjoy the cherry blossom season, you can walk through several temples and shrines and you can also take a tour.
Transportation: Take the city bus and get off at the "Ginkakuji Temple" or "Nanchanji" stop and walk for 5 minutes along the river.
