First, you will visit the exquisite Ginkakuji, known as the "Silver Pavilion'. From here, stroll along the famous Philosopher's Walk, a tranquil pathway by the canal flanked by beautiful shrubs and trees. End the walk near the Heian Shrine and make a quick visit.
Afterwards, head to Nijo castle, which was once the seat of Japanese medieval power for many centuries. Have some time at leisure in Nishijin Textile Centre or spend time exploring the Teramachi, a covered shopping arcade with the interesting Nishiki Food Market.
