Popular Attractions in Uji

Byodo-in
4.6/5
228 Reviews
UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site    
Byodo-in is a temple garden built in the chisen kaiyuushiki style during the Heiain period of Japanese history. It was listed as a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1994. In front of the Byodo-in is the Uji River, and a little further back is Mount Asahi (Asahiyama). Byodo-in was once a pleasure villa for many past emperors. When the temple was first built, there were many more buildings, but most of them burned down during a civil war. Now there are just the Phoenix Hall, Guanyin Hall and Bell Tower. Among them, the most famous is the Phoenix Hall.

Temple
Kiyomizu-dera Temple is an ancient temple in Kyoto and was listed as a World Cultural Heritage site in 1994. The veranda of the temple suspended over the moutain is a national treasure of Japan. It is surrounded by green trees and is full of cherry blossoms in spring. In autumn, the red maple leaves is another attraction. It is equivalent to Kinkaku-jiand Arashiyama, and is a famous historical site in Kyoto. The pilgrims or visiting tourists who come to worship year round come in non-stop.
Fushimi Inari Taisha
4.6/5
1,805 Reviews
Temple
Fushimi Inari Taisha is one of the oldest shrines in Kyoto. People come to worship Inari Okami, the god harvest and commercial success. The Torii leading to the main shrine is a famous landscape of this shrine. This long and endless pathway is arranged from the foot of the mountain to the top of the mountain. It is one of the representative landscapes of Kyoto and has appeared in the movie “Memoirs of a Geisha”. Because the fox is regarded as the messenger of the Inari Okami, the fox-faced shaped emas are a major feature here.
