Path of Philosophy in Kyoto

The "Philosopher's Path" is famous for the cherry blossom's that form a tunnel over the canal in the spring. The path is also a place for students at Kyoto University to come for "hanami" (cherry blossom parties) and welcoming parties for new students. The path got its name from the famous philosophy professor, Kitaro Nishida, who used to stroll along this peaceful stretch of road deeply engrossed in meditation.
