The Philosopher’s Walk in Kyoto

T

The Philosopher’s Walk is a pedestrian path that follows a cherry-tree-lined canal in Kyoto, Japan between Ginkaku-ji and Nanzen-ji. First opened in 1890 and extended again in 1912, the path follows the course of a shallow irrigation channel bringing water from the Lake Biwa Canal. And these are the facts, but as much as there is a lot more to it, today’s post is about the view of the city down below. Don’t get me wrong I love the beauty of the path and I will return to it in the future. Today I want to appreciate the stunning views of the valley where Kyoto sits. It was a sunny day with a few clouds when I took this photograph and I love how the rays cut through the clouds onto the houses below.
