Byodoin Omote-sando, Uji

3.5
#5 of 18 in Historic Sites in Uji
In the green tea capital of the country, you'll find Byodoin Omote-sando, a historic stone paved street by the river brimming with tea shops and eateries. The city has been heavily associated with quality tea production for hundreds of years, with many opportunities to sample the fabled produce along the roa. Tea shops roast their leaves facing onto the street, so all you need do is follow your nose. Other shops sell tea-related items, and if you're hungry, search among the eateries for a shop selling green tea-infused soba. Check out the desert and confectionery shops selling refreshing "matcha" ice cream, made from a powdered form of the tea.

  • Large Torii gate is located along the River, from there to byodo souvenir shop on both sides and lined with shops you can dine. It too is not. I think after a visit to buy souvenirs here.

  • The approach towards the front of the byodoin. Souvenir shop and what ways like dining, Uji tea is lined with a number of stores not so much, rather extends in the direction of approach from JR Uji station is crowded. Very quiet, calm, so you can walk.

  • Wu, in the area located to byobu. Green tea/tea/Hodge deogg and directly the car. .. Fascinated by the intense aroma that enters the street. (Get off at JR is Hina Wu area although the start ^^) tea-related you can eat a lot. You can eat only desserts such as ice cream. I think a good place to buy tea-related items.

Where to stay in Uji

The small and historical city of Uji has a modest collection of accommodations, but many of them provide an atmospheric stay. Traditional "ryokan" (guesthouses) represent some of the most authentic and memorable places to stay here, with the most popular ones sitting on the western bank of the river. Elsewhere, a couple of simple hotels sit next to the main train station. The vast majority of visitors to Uji opt to stay in either Kyoto or Nara, with both accessible in under an hour by road and rail.
