Kyoto seems like a city of endless places for a tourist to visit. Countless Temples and Shrines dot the maps of this ancient city. Even if you restrict yourself to the most famous ones, you’ll have a spend a good couple of weeks in Kyoto to see them. Kyoto has 17 places listed as UNESCO world heritage sites and many more listed as Japanese National Treasures.
Our first stop on our trip around Kyoto was the Philosopher’s Path, sometimes also called the Philosopher’s Walk (哲学の道). It starts at the Silver Pavilion (銀閣寺) and follows a creek, going by many other (mostly less important) temples and shrines and ends at another famous temple, Nanzenji (南禅寺).
