Inspirock Rating:
3.8/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web
In the green tea capital of the country, you'll find Byodoin Omotesando, 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.

  • 那天到達宇治時已經是4時了,不少商店已關門,但平第院表參道的抹茶專門店們卻還有不少客人。表參道兩旁有得多食店,也有很多買抹茶產品的店,保證你滿載而歸! 
  • A lot of food and souvenir shops abound. Lively, fun approach. Come through this approach, go to the equality Institute.

  • One of the most beautiful Zen temples in Japan, also one of the oldest! Best to visit in the morning for perfect lighting for photos!
  • Ever wanted to see the 10 yen coin in real life? Well open up your purse it's right there. Byodou Temple and its surroundings isn't a terrible way to spend an afternoon or morning. Really beautiful grounds and an informative museum. Also y'know. The temple itself. That's pretty amazing.
  • Good place for tourists to visit traditional japanese temple.
  • A guide say in Japanese, but I can get the English and Korean script at the ticket office. So I can understand the Phenix hall in more detail. That's wonderful.
  • English information sheet about the history is provided. 900yen to get into the site plus another 300 yen to get into the exhibit.
