The Philosopher's Path is a picturesque stone path lined with hundreds of cherry trees in Kyoto. Located between Ginkaku-ji and Nanzen-ji Temples, there are also some shrines, galleries and cafes surrounding the area. The view is usually best-viewed in early April, when the trees have fully bloomed and the colors are at its most vivid, yet sweetest state.
A prominent Japanese philosopher named Nishida Kitaro, was said to have used the path for his daily meditation, hence the name.
Philosopher's Path is a 25-35 minute bus ride from Kyoto Station. Just take bus number 5 or 17, or Raku Bus number 100 to go to Ginkaku-ji Temple.
