Walk or Path of Philosophy

Tetsugaku no michi (哲学の道) is the walking path that runs between Ginkakuji (pictured on the upper-right portion of this page) and Nanzenji. There are several other beautiful temples and shrines that run up the hill from this path too. Unfortunately, the SD card in my camera malfunctioned, and I lost those pictures. That gives me a good reason for going back though. 😉

Some of the trees were in full bloom, but most still needed another few days. This was on the 1st of April, 2007.

Nishida Kitaro, a philosophy professor at Kyoto University in the early part of the 20th Century, walked this path on a daily basis. Hence, the name–Walk of Philosophy. In English you also hear it referred to as the Path of Philosophy or the Philosopher’s Path.
