Philosopher's Path 哲学の道 #2

The Philosopher's Path begins in the north around The Ginkakuji Temple (Temple of the Silver Pavilion) and ends in the neighborhood of Nanzenji to the south at the Kumano Nyakuoji Shrine and Eikan-do Hall. The path gets its name from philosophy professor Nishida Kitaro who was said to practice meditation while walking this route on his daily commute to Kyōto University.


  1. Thank you for more sakura! So breathtaking. Is that clear blue skies over Kyoto? No smog?

  2. My pleasure I hope that you are enjoying and will not mind a few more sakura photographs in the near future? The sky was surprisingly clear this last weekend due to heavy winds and storms that ended just in time for full bloom and hanami on the weekend.
