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.


Shishigatani Honenin Nishimachi, Sakyo Ward, Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture 606-8427, Japan


The Philosopher's Path runs between Ginkakuji and the neighbourhood of Nanzenji, a 5-10 minute walk north of Nanzenji's main temple buildings.
