  • Paddle down the path of philosophy with beautiful cherry trees shadowing over
  • Visit the Zen temples and canals with old teahouses and bathhouses
Paddle your way through the Path of Philosophy with beautiful cherry tress overshadowing the way. See shrines, temples, cherry trees, and mountains - this is an enlightening escape from the city to get the real feel of Kyoto and learn about it history spanning over 1200 years.

Start the day cycling along the Kamo River, taking in the views of the city€™s downtown and passing the wealth of traditional riverside restaurants. Call by the Heian-Jingu Shrine, built in 1894 to commemorate the 1,100 anniversary of the foundation of the capital.

Next, weave your way along quaint canals to reach the impressive Nanzenji Temple.' Admire the temple€™s spacious grounds with a surprising feature: a scenic aqueduct,' ' with the Higashiyama Mountains as their backdrop. This is one of the most important Zen temples in all of Japan, so soak up the surrounds before jumping back on your bike and heading off down the Path of Philosophy.

Arguably the most popular walking path in' Kyoto, the Path of Philosophy is shaded by hundreds of cherry trees that erupt into bloom every April. It's a spectacular sight to see then, but it's' rather beautiful the rest of the year as well. It's' a great place to contemplate the tranquillity and beauty of the area, just like Nishida Kitaro, one of Japan's most famous philosophers, did when he named this route on his daily commute to' Kyoto' University.

Cycle back towards' Kyoto' Station, along a beautiful canal with old teahouses and traditional bathhouses among the cherry trees and traditional' narrow' backroads.We'll end this' Kyoto' city tour back at the city's buzzing station.

“Lulu, our guide for the trip, did a great job showing us around Kyoto. The bikes were well maintained and the course was very enjoyable. We would have missed out on a lot of interesting facts and places had we tried to visit these locations on our own. After the tour she showed us a great ramen restaurant and gave us some advise for our plans after the tour.”
