Think and Rethink in Tetsugaku no Michi

You are not visiting Kyoto unless you go and see the nostalgic places scattered around the city. Forget the bustling of the metropolitan cities such as Osaka and Tokyo, here you will definitely be amazed by the harmony of nature and temples. Regarding its anciency, some temples are rewarded as the UNESCO world heritage such as Kinkaku-ji, Kiyomizu-dera, and Ginkaku-ji. Speaking of the latter, one should take a walk on the philosopher path leading to Ginkaku-ji, the silver pavilion.

Kyoto had been the capital city of Japan for almost 1000 years. Since the Buddhist temples require a peaceful and silent area for the meditation, in early 20 centuries, a professor from Kyoto University creates the Philosopher Path or Tetsugaku no Michi. As the name implied, this place is quite suitable for people to think and regain his self-purification. Furthermore, the cherry blossoms tree along the path will highlight the beauty and purity.
