The Philosopher’s Walk is a path that follows a cherry tree-lined canal, covering famous temples in a beautiful district in Kyoto. The name comes from the 20th century Japanese philosopher Nishida Kitaro and his everyday walks on that path.
We saw Nanzen-ji temple, walked through Honen-in garden and reached the remarkable Ginkaku-ji temple at the end. This temple is the most beautiful among all the others. It is also called the ‘silver temple’ because of the light reflecting from a small pond and the white sand garden in front of it in the evenings. The best moment of the day was the Kyoto view during the sunset from the top garden of this temple.
