All about a beautiful path in Kyoto with cherry trees along canal like a stream from Lake Biwa. You can enjoy Japanese great landscape when walking on the path called "Philosopher's Walk".

Sacred Tree

Sacred tree of Nyakuoji Shrine is called "Nagi" in Japanese. It is said that it will mow down your plight if you pay your respects at Nyakuoji Shrine and "Nagi" because "mow down" means "Nagi-taosu" in Japanese. That is, the sacred tree "Nagi" and "Nagi-taosu" meaning "mow down" in English match rhyming words....

Nagi is located just on the right of a small bridge over the stream running to "Sosui", which is a canal along the Philosopher’s walk. The tree has a sign as a sacred tree with a white cloth around thick trunk as a posted picture above shows. I think you won't miss it.
