If you’re looking to stretch your legs and while exploring Kyoto, try the Philosopher’s Path! This beautiful stone path runs for 2 kilometers in the north of Kyoto. It is named after the famous Japanese philosopher Nishida Kitaro who used to meditate while walking this path on his way to work at Kyoto University. It is easy to see why the Philosophers Path became such a popular tourist destination, as it offers a beautiful walk. The path runs along a canal which is lined with cherry trees. During cherry blossom season in April, these trees decorate the track with their delicate pink petals. The Philosophers Path also offers plenty of sights along the way, among which several traditional Japanese temples and shrines, such as the Silver Pavilion at the start of the path and the Honen-in Temple. The Philosopher’s Path is suited to all travelers and restaurants, shops, and cafés offer pleasant resting spots along the way.
