  • 宇治川去了兩次,平常人都不多,很適合在岸邊悠閒散步,記得第一次去是在7月,住在宇治川旁邊的旅館,晚上和我妹走去車站前的超市買東西,沿路都沒什麼人很安靜,那個時候還可以看到鵜飼。第二次去是4月,岸邊的櫻花雖然快掉光了還是很美,如果再早幾天來就可以看到盛開的櫻花了吧! 
  • You can walk since a bridge over little sandbar sandbar and both sides of the river. You can explore lots of information there was a sandbar or cross-strait upstream was under construction on the way back, but the past.
