Popular Attractions in Uji

Byodo-in
4.6/5
228 Reviews
UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site
Byodo-in is a temple garden built in the chisen kaiyuushiki style during the Heiain period of Japanese history. It was listed as a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1994. In front of the Byodo-in is the Uji River, and a little further back is Mount Asahi (Asahiyama). Byodo-in was once a pleasure villa for many past emperors. When the temple was first built, there were many more buildings, but most of them burned down during a civil war. Now there are just the Phoenix Hall, Guanyin Hall and Bell Tower. Among them, the most famous is the Phoenix Hall.
Kiyomizu-dera Temple
4.6/5
2,861 Reviews
Temple
Kiyomizu-dera Temple is an ancient temple in Kyoto and was listed as a World Cultural Heritage site in 1994. The veranda of the temple suspended over the moutain is a national treasure of Japan. It is surrounded by green trees and is full of cherry blossoms in spring. In autumn, the red maple leaves is another attraction. It is equivalent to Kinkaku-jiand Arashiyama, and is a famous historical site in Kyoto. The pilgrims or visiting tourists who come to worship year round come in non-stop.
Fushimi Inari Taisha
4.6/5
1,800 Reviews
Temple
Fushimi Inari Taisha is one of the oldest shrines in Kyoto. People come to worship Inari Okami, the god harvest and commercial success. The Torii leading to the main shrine is a famous landscape of this shrine. This long and endless pathway is arranged from the foot of the mountain to the top of the mountain. It is one of the representative landscapes of Kyoto and has appeared in the movie “Memoirs of a Geisha”. Because the fox is regarded as the messenger of the Inari Okami, the fox-faced shaped emas are a major feature here.

Those who go to Uji Equality Academy should pass through this Samsung Park and enter the Uji shop. The boss will have a little Chinese, and will be very enthusiastic to introduce guests to the second floor of the small exhibition hall to see the history of their stores. I am very proud to say that they used to supply tea to the generals. Indeed, the Uji shop of Shanglin Sanjin, according to their store information, has a history of 500 years. Many domestic propaganda and reports may be written in this way. It is estimated that most of the matcha for Shanglin's family may have been written here. However, people who may be careful can also notice that there is a shop next door, there is also a shop called (literally: Shanglinjia of tea), and a small brand is standing, writing Shanglins home. Descendants operate! (Sounds like a look of pride and contempt for other stores...) Perhaps, many people will not know: For the matcha's matcha, there is also a shop called "Shanglin Chunsong". Listening confused? What is the relationship between these three? Who is the real tea shop operated by the Shanglin family? Come, list a table: Upper Lin Chunsong's history can be found in 450 years. The history of the Edo period is indeed the name of Shanglin , only 400 years of business. The current president is Shanglin Chunsongs younger brother, Shanglin Shanglin, who entered the business for 500 years. The original operator was called Fujimura. He changed his name from the Edo era, calling himself Shanglin, and named the store Shanglin III. In, but why changed name... did not find the record. The current business family is Tanaka, probably taking over during the Taisho period. The authentic battle for the tea shop in Shanglin seems to be the most powerful battle between the tea and the Shanglin Sanjin... But now the management strategy of Shanglin Sanjin seems to be more flexible, and the tourists are also the most ... This is the case. However, many old shops in Kyoto have a variety of "historical conversions" and family disputes. Who is true and who is false is not very clear. Anyway, this does not affect every household's heart to study the taste and quality of their own matcha. (photo by paws, light STUDIO)
