OFFER ID 1476321

From late March to mid-April, Japan's springtime ushers in the much-awaited Sakura season when the country is blanketed in the pink splendor of its national flower. This tour lets you stroll along the idyllic Philosopher's Path - a stone walkway that follows a canal laden with cherry blossom trees on the side and goes through the northern part of Kyoto's renowned Higashiyama District.

The Philosopher's Path 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. Approximately 1.25 miles long, the path begins around Ginkakuji (Silver Pavilion) and ends in the neighborhood of Nanzenji. The path gets its name due to Nishida Kitaro, one of Japan's most famous philosophers, who was said to practice meditation while walking this route on his daily commute to Kyoto University. There are many small temples and shrines to stop off along the walk.
