Strolling Along the Philosopher’s Walk (Kansai, Japan Trip 2012, Day 11)

On the 11th day of our trip, we decided to take a stroll along the Philosopher’s Walk (哲学之道). The pathway is dotted with cherry blossoms and we were lucky that most of the trees are in full blossom. We took many photos and visited Ginkaku-ji (银阁寺) along the way. The walk ended at Nanzen-ji (南禅寺) where we had the famous beancurd soup (汤豆腐) meal in one of the restaurants.

After the walk, we went back to our Ikoi-no-ie (憩の家) to have our kimono wearing session. We had fun wearing the kimono and taking photos near our hotel. It was fun and not too expensive. Do give it a try! 😉
