Ujigami Shrine, Uji
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Part of a World Heritage Site and one of the oldest shrines in the country, Ujigami Shrine dates back to 1060. The shrine was supposedly built to honor Uji no Wakiiratsuko, a prince who committed suicide to settle a dispute of the imperial succession. Its nagare-zukuri architectural style features a curved, asymmetrical roof extending above the main entrance to provide shelter for worshippers. Look out for the basin fed by a famous spring, whose water is used for tea ceremonies and is said to have special properties.

神社自体はすごくこじんまりしていて誰もいなければ非常に雰囲気もあり素敵だと思います、しかも無料なんで。しかし社務所が非常に残念。完全にお土産やさん、しかもかなり金を儲けたい感じがして少し引いてしまいました。神社の外でやってもらいたいものです。At the shrine itself is very small, no one else so atmosphere is nice I think, and free it. But the Office very much unfortunately. All souvenirs and is, felt it considerably to make money, I was pulling a little bit. It is what wants to do outside the shrine.show original
平等院から宇治川を渡ったところにある立派な神社です。周りの雰囲気が趣もあり､是非立ち寄る事をお勧めします。It is a splendid Shrine just across the River from the byodo. It is recommended and quaint atmosphere around, please stop by.show original
A very quiet and peaceful place. The walk to it takes you past the local neighborhood where you will see nice local houses. The place has alot less tourist, all in all a good place to go.
Small shrine but with the most beautiful surrounding! Worth to walk a little further from the Uji shrine
