(3.2/5 based on 2,400+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, nature, museums
Lying between Kyoto and Nara, the small city of Uji stands as a place of culture and history. Growing in the shadows of the two cultural giants--both former capitals--has had plenty of beneficial effects on Uji, with powerful clans from each having built showpiece shrines and temples here over the centuries. Today, such ancient sites serve as some of the main attractions in Uji, along with sites related to green tea production. While other cities claim to be the original place of Japan's love for tea, the little city has been content enough to celebrate its reputation for high quality green tea for the past 1,000 years.

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.
