Philosopher's Path (Tetsugaku no michi)
Park & Garden in Kyoto, Japan
The Philosopher's Path (哲学の道, Tetsugaku no michi) is a pleasant stone path through the northern part of Kyoto's Higashiyama district. The path follows a canal which is lined by hundreds of cherry trees. Usually, in early April, these trees explode with colour, making this one of the city's most popular hanami (cherry blossom viewing) spots.
