Perhaps one of the most scenic walk in Kyoto is the Path of Philosophy. Tucked between two beautiful temples of Ginkaku-ji and Nanzen-ji, its path meanders along a small quaint river with several cafes along the Cherry trees which promise a magnificent view during the Cherry Blossom season in April! At approximately two kilometers in distance, one might need a few hours to complete the walk. You may sip a cup of tea while munching on snacks along the way, and not to mention the many spots for photo-taking along the blossoming trees. I was completely mesmerized by the beauty of the Sakura petals dancing in the cool breeze of the cool wind in Spring.
Do be warned that during the peak Cherry Blossom season, the path will be packed with tourist and locals vying for a glimpse of the glorious Sakura. If it is no hassle, make an effort to rise early to beat the crowd or the next best timing to visit would be just before sunset. Nevertheless, it is still worth the visit anytime during the day in April!
