My article, A Trip to Uji, is now up on Chris Rowthorn’s Inside Kyoto site. In it I describe a complete circuit of all of Uji’s major sites. Uji is a remarkably well preserved town with several shrines and temples of historical interest, including two World Heritage Sites, and all set within a beautiful natural landscape. Many locations there are associated with the Tale of Genji and so there is a Tale of Genji of Museum there too. In my article I visit all of these locations and manage to fit in a special river-side lunchtime recommendation, and matcha ice cream at Japan’s oldest tea shop! Check out the article at the link: A Trip to Uji.
Here are some pictures from Kosho-ji Temple which didn’t make it into the final article.
