The Philosopher’s Path or the Philosopher’s Walk, is a path in Kyoto’s Saikyo ward that runs next to a canal that drains Lake Biwa.
The path begins near Ginkaku-ji and ends at Nanzen-ji, passing a number of temples on the way including Zenrin-ji and Honen-in.
The path is particularly popular during cherry blossom season as the canal is lined with cherry trees.
