La célèbre promenade zen de Kyoto

Le chemin de la Philosophie (Tetsugaku no michi en japonais), emprunté autrefois par les lettrés et les moines, favorise la méditation. Les lieux sont très appréciés des touristes, et sont tout particulièrement célèbres durant le hanami, lorsque le canal se couvre de fleurs roses...

Along The Philosopher's Path

Following the path of philosophy can be an opportunity to kill two birds with one stone - or more. There are many temples and shrines have been built not far from the famous path.

It is possible to take a day or an afternoon to enjoy the complete course, for example, begin at Nanzen-ji temple, south of the Philosopher's Path, and end at Ginkaku-ji in the north. Or vice versa.

This will optimize visits and save time, as this part of the city is also only accessible by bus.
