Find out more about Uji

Uji, located on the scenic Uji River to the south of Kyoto, has a rich history spanning thousands of years. Step back into the era of feudal Japan by visiting wonderfully preserved temples and shrines that include UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Discover the city’s links with the beginnings of the Genpei War in the 1100s. And learn about Uji’s role as one of the centers of green tea production and trade in Japan. All this, combined with the beautiful landscape, makes Uji the perfect spot for uncovering authentic Japanese culture.

Hotels in Uji


Visitors to the city will find an excellent selection of Uji hotels. These include traditional luxury accommodation and more modern hotel rooms in Uji itself and on the outskirts of Kyoto. Travelers looking for a luxury Uji hotel should check out Kyoto Uji Hanayashiki Ukifune-en. This ryokan, a traditional Japanese inn, provides comfortable, spacious rooms with authentic décor, including woven tatami mats and Shoji paper doors. It’s also in a prime location on the riverbank and even includes spa facilities. However, for a budget hotel in Uji, take a look at the Travelersdou Kirinya - Hostel, conveniently located in the city center.

Things to see in Uji


Perhaps the most famous historic site in Uji is the Byodoin Temple. This former palace of an emperor, along with its picturesque gardens, offers a true piece of Japanese history. One particular highlight of the temple grounds is the grand Phoenix Hall on the banks of the river. Built almost 1,000 years ago, this red-and-white building with magnificent, tiled roofs is a sight to behold. Don’t forget to visit the nearby Byodoin Museum Hoshokan afterward to learn about the historical context of the temple. With a high amount of Japanese treasures concentrated and beautifully presented in one place, this museum houses authentic sculptures and artwork retrieved from the grounds. Take a trip to one of Uji’s many shrines, such as the Ujigama Shrine near the river, for great insights into Japan’s spiritual traditions. Also, tea lovers should experience a Japanese tea ceremony at Taihoan, where they can taste the matcha green tea that the region is famous for.

Good for couples


You and your partner can enjoy the traditional sights of Japanese temples and shrines in Uji, alongside the lovely landscape and river. Relax together with a spa treatment at a traditional boutique hotel in Uji, or look in the center of the city or to the south of Kyoto for a discount Uji hotel, leaving you with more spending money on your vacation. Families will also love this peaceful and interesting location. There are shrines and temples to explore, where you can learn about the history of the country, but also parks to wander around. In addition, there are activities suitable for both adults and children, such as tea ceremonies.

How to get to Uji


From Osaka International Airport to the southwest of the Kyoto region, it’s about a 40-minute drive to the center of Uji. Otherwise, the quickest route is via the Osaka Airport Limousine coach service, offering great-value fares directly to Kyoto. From here, take the Nara train line that goes straight to Uji train station. Another option for flights is Kansai International Airport, although the drive from here is a little longer at approximately 1 hour 20 minutes. Uji’s train station is located centrally, allowing you to visit the city of Kyoto, home to even more temples and shrines, in less than 1 hour.
