  • This temple was one of the prettiest I've visited. Highly recommended to drop by Uji and this temple if you are in the area. Just a short walk from the Uji JR station.
  • Historical temple, beautiful scenery, away from noise and roads.
  • Offers to let visitors pay 300 yen, but just like with is interesting. Turns are quietly relaxing feel to the Japanese people. Don't think everyone coming up here until the Uji Jinja in one naka居.

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.
