Philosopher's Walk哲学の道

Street

A 1.5 kilometer promenade following the Lake Biwa Canal leading from Nyakuoji shrine to Ginkakuji Temple. The path gained its name from philosophers such as Kitaro Nishida and Hajime Tanabe walking it lost in thought. In spring, it becomes a veritable tunnel of cherry blossoms and visitors can enjoy the elegant sight of the fallen petals floating on the surface of the waterway. In June, fireflies flit about in the night air, creating a magical scene.

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
