The Gion district is one of Kyoto’s oldest neighbourhoods.

The Philosopher's Path (or Tetsugaku-no-Michi as it is known in Japan) is one of the greatest exploratory walks you can experience in Kyoto. The Path is located in the northern area of Higashiyama at the base of Kyoto's East Mountain. It is a place to wander, to find yourself, to embrace peace and quiet and to see what makes Kyoto so unique as a city. The path follows the Lake Biwa Canal for around 29 kilometres at the base of the mountain. The trail is lined with cherry trees on either side.

Self Guided Walk Along Petrin Hill, Prague

Self Guided Walk Along Petrin Hill, Prague

The walk takes about 30 minutes; it's a bit steep but walking through the woods and trees as you climb is a pleasantly quiet experience. We chose to walk down the hill and very much could see the appeal of wanting to take the stroll up and avoid the lines for the funicular. But it was rather rainy, and we figured it would be best to go with the funicular option. 

Walking Tour of Meiji Shrine

Walking Tour of Meiji Shrine

There are hundreds of Shrines to see in Tokyo, and deciding which ones to see can be tough. I often feel like I'm missing out if I don't make it to every big item on the "must-see" list. The Meiji Shrine was one of those locations you see on every list, and I thought I'd be remiss not to see it.
