Then, we walk down the “pottery street” lined with many old houses and shops/galleries. Pottery is of course a specialty here. Move on to the famous Philosopher Walk, a quiet and meditative pathway that winds its way along a canal lined with lovely shrubs and trees. Start your stroll from the gorgeous Ginkakuji or commonly known as the “Silver Pavilion”. The walk ends near Heian Shrine where we make a quick visit.

    After lunch, continue to Nijo castle, seat of Japanese medieval power for many centuries. Then, we will catch a kimono show in the Nishijin Textile Center. Late afternoon, you will have time walking around the Teramachi (the covered shopping arcade with a very interesting Nishiki Food Market.)
