Popular spots such as Nanzenji Temple and Heian Jingu Shrine are gathered together in the area of Okazaki.
This area is dotted with places and buildings deeply connected to Lake Biwa, representing a symbol of the modernization of Kyoto.
There are many retro spots such as the water channel in Nanzenji precinct or the spring water flowing around Okazaki Park, but the one recommended for spring is "Incline".
It is an inclined old railway now restored, made to carry small ships which were used to travel between waterways.
Why don't you walk this modern romance scented track while looking up at the arched cherry blossoms?
