Additional Information

Introduction

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.
