Since Professor Kitaro Nishida of Kyoto University, a leading philosopher in Japan, used to walk along this road and ponder profoundly, this road is called Path of Philosophy. Originally, in the latter half of the 19th century, Meiji Era, many philosophers visited here , so people call Path of Philosophy. Along this path, lots of trees are planted in line and it creates nice atmosphere with a stream. You can enjoy beautiful cherry blossoms in spring and the colored leaves in autumn. Winter is also a good season to visit here when it snows.
