Artist's description:

This is a photograph taken on the 'philosopher's path' in Kyoto. The path gets its name due to Nishida Kitaro, one of Japan's most famous philosophers, who was said to practice meditation while walking this route on his daily commute to Kyoto University. Nishida was a representative philosopher in Japan. He graduated from Kyoto University and became a high school teacher, but later retired from this work and embarked on his career as a philosopher. In 1940, he received a medal of distinction as one who had contributed greatly to Japanese literature. He passed away, aged 75, in 1945. The fish in the photograph is a carp.
