    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.

    Introducing the ancient temple in Uji kosho-ji Temple. Crossing the bridge from the main tourist byodoin Temple and souvenir shops, walk about 10 minutes upstream in the River Road along the river. You can enjoy the tranquillity is a little away from the bustling area. The entrance is a stone gate. Old red leaf spots is extended straight to the main shrine is called "琴坂", but at the same time blue Maple is excellent. Because it is uphill walk slowly while watching the Green Maple. By Kina Hiroshi main hall, inside of a building can be viewed. Towards the front and go to the right entrance entrance and main. Kina here and take off your shoes and more.

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.
