Description

Explore one of the oldest cities in Japan! Located between the two ancient capitals of Nara and Kyoto, Uji's roots reach almost as deep into Japanese history as its two famous neighbors.

Upon arrival at Uji, visit the ancient Uji Bridge. Thought to have been built in the 7th century, the bridge is known as one the oldest in the country.

Next, enjoy a relaxing morning stroll around Furitsu Uji Park. Situated on the bank of Uji River, this park offers a magnificent view of Arashiyama.

Then, enjoy a simple tea ceremony at Taiho-an, an authentic tea house on the bank of Uji River.

Head to the World Heritage Site-listed Byodo-in Temple, a Buddhist temple that houses Buddha statue and other images, surrounded by a beautiful garden. An image of this temple's Phoenix Hall is featured on the 10 yen coin.

At the end of the tour, you will board a train to Kyoto Station.
