What people are saying:

The way of philosophy has come for the third time. Every time I am moved by the quietness here. Last time I walked from Eikando to Ginkakuji, this time it rained halfway from Ginkakuji. Tao is very suitable for a light rain scene, a little lonely, a little lonely, maybe it is this kind of atmosphere that has infected me, I have come to Kyoto many times, and every time I come here to pace. .

Additional Information


The Philosopher's Walk is located in the foothills of Dongshan Mountain. It is next to an artificial river channel and passes through Faran Monastery before ending at Ginkakuji Temple. It is a walking path about 1.5 kilometers long and was once selected as one of Japan's famous roads. Because the philosopher Nishida Kentaro often came here to think about the philosophy of life, the famous cherry trees lining the roadside were donated by the artist Mrs. Hashimoto.
