Kotonobesso Kyomachiya Ginkaku / Kyoto Okazaki・Kitashirakawa・Kitayama 26


Ginkaku is one of "Kyoto's three great pavilions" along with Kinkaku and Hiunkaku (in the grounds of West-Hongan-ji Temple).

In addition, the name of Ginkakuji (Jishuji-ji, Kannon-den) is named for  showing respect for Kinkaku built by Yoshimitsu in the Edo period.

When you arrive at Kyomachiya Ginkaku" which is a little far away from the main road of Ginkakuj. The main road is often busy but now is wrapped by the calming atmosphere.
One minute down from the philosophical path, you can feel your heart calmed down by the soothing sound of the river flow.
You may feel lost in a world of different dimensions.

How about thinking about life like the philosopher Nishida Kitaro? Kitaro NISHIDA is said to have walked along this road in meditation.
The path of philosophy is filled with cherry blossoms in springand falling leaves in autumn. In early summer (late May to mid June), there are fireflies. This scene is not listed in the guidebook. (It is often seen at the location by the Daitoyo Shrine)

[Mystery of the Path of Philosophy] The river flowing from south to north along the path of philosophy. Natural rivers flow from north to south. I wonder why?

[Answer] This river is the channeling that was made artificially to carry water from Lake Biwa.

From Ginkakuji to the south along Higashiyama,  Shiawaseiizo, Honen-in, Anrakuji, Gikankanji, Daitoyo Shrine, Wakaoji Shrine, Eikan-do, Nanzen-ji Temple and other scenic spots which are all lining in a row. 

In addition, Shinnyo-do (especially the garden where the autumn leaves are superb) which is on another side of Shirakawa street.
It is full of attractions such as Konkaikoumyouji Temple (Mr. Kurotani) and if you go to the south, you will see the Heian Jingu Shrine and many places worth visiting.
In addition, Ginkakuji is located at the foot of Mt. Daimoji.

Every year on August 16th, you can enjoy an event called Daimoji no Okuribi which is a bonfire in the shape of the Chinese character whose meaning is "large."
It is held once a year and the picture of it looks good on Instagram
Every year it is fully-booked.
