Remarkably uncrowded for such a beautiful garden, a rival to Kenrokuen in Kanazawa and Korakuen in Okayama — but the meticulously pruned pine trees and borrowed scenery of a wild hillside are better!
The garden was built around the 17th century arround the hills of Takamatsu and is a must see for those interested in the wonders of nature, a perfect place to stroll and take in this magnificent garden.

Lake Kawaguchiko

Blessed with good weather and clear sky early October, lake is beautiful especially with surrounding trees enabling lovely photos with foreground lake and magnificent My Fuji in the background.
If you want to see most of the lake, I recommend you take the pleasure cruiser or if you’re up for some exercise, rent the paddle boat located near the pleasure cruiser (the swan and panda boats) Beautiful lake!

Amano Yasugawara

Located just 3 minute walk from the Amano-Iwato shrine, past cafes, descend the steps, over a stone bridge & listen to the sound of the gentle river flowing through a highly spiritual place.
It's like a magical fairy tale and a postcard rolled into one, the waterfalls, the rivers, the cave shrine with mysteriously stacked pebble formations.


You will enter through the commercial part however the further you go you will go along paths that will take you on a magical adventure, landscapes, exotic plants, lakes and rivers that cross everywhere.

This was my third trip to Kyoto, and I always look forward to enjoying a stroll along this quiet, charming canal, basking in nature's gentle beauty and popping into the intriguing cafes and shops along the way.
If you head straight uphill, it'll lead you to Ginkakuji temple and all the shops and food stalls along the way and if you veer right, you'll be walking on the Philosopher's path.
