Taking the time to walk down the streets surrounded by cherry blossoms is one of the simplest ways of taking in the beauty of the spring season. Though accessible throughout the whole year, sight-seeing spots in Kyoto change colors as this wonderful season approaches. We recommend taking a stroll early in the morning for wonderfully fresh air and for a bright way to start your day. Now for our recommended walking route in the eastern part of Kyoto: Start from the north-eastern part at Ginkaku-ji Temple area, head south through Path of Philosophy and take a leisurely morning stroll. Walking from the Path of Philosophy down to Keage Incline normally takes about 30 minutes. We suggest you look about 2 hours for the walk instead and give yourself enough time to sightsee and slowly enjoy the walk. A whole day can easily be spent in this area since there are so many places to visit. We will be introducing below several spots to stop by on the way down the path. Breathe in the fresh spring air, take a stroll slowly down along the rivers, and see what Kyoto has to offer during this sensational season.
