TETSUGAKU-NO-MICHI (Path of Philosophy)

 Tetusugaku-no-michi is a path which runs along a canal just south of Ginkaku-ji. It is lined with sakura trees and some lovely souvenir and handicraft shops.
 I would love to see it when the cherry blossoms are in bloom.
It's about 2km long, but as I was feeling sicker by the hour, we just walked a short way, and then walked back to the starting point. Although I felt dreadful, I still managed to make a few purchases from the souvenir shops! He he.

These appeared to be grave stones. They were erected on the side of the road, which seems to be the done thing in Asia.
A cute little temple.
Gorgeous bag shop.
This is a really lovely walk to do. There is lots of interesting things to see on the way, and some little cafes too if you feel a bit parched.
