Kyoto is covered by mountains for 3 sides besides South, and many temples, shrines and gardens are located at the foot of mountains on the East Side

Kyoto Culture started on the West Side and moved to the East Side.

I plan this tour to observe several scenic places from North to South on the Eastern Side mountains.

Silver Temple, Philosopher's path, Nanzenji Temple, Murinan Garden, Nishiki Market and Fushimi Inari Shrine.
