The Philosopher’s Walk is a stone path which follows the small canal between Ginkaku-ji Temple and Nanzen-ji Temple in eastern Kyoto. It passes by a number of quiet and picturesque temples, and is renowned as one of the best places to enjoy the cherry blossoms in the spring, when beautiful pink blossoms overhang the path like a canopy. The path is named after Nishida Kitaro, a famous philosopher at Kyoto University who used to walk and meditate there daily.
