I really enjoyed walking along this path, BUT it was a freezing cold January day, and I had a bad cold, so I didn't see it at its best! I liked the houses and shops and cafes along the path, and thought it'd be really pretty in more clement weather - with either autumn leaves or blossoms on the trees. It was a pleasant route, though, and had we had time I'd have liked to have strolled up and down it a bit more, and visited all three of the larger temples as well as the smaller shrines and temples along its length. It was really nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, to be honest.
Note for Mad Cat Ladies: there is a store selling cat stuff up towards the Silver Temple end, which was a fun place!
