Good scene with historical background

It's not a popular spot, but it has many historical meanings, joining up the two sides... You can walk across it to discover more about Uji. Uji itself is a good place to visit... read more

It's not a popular spot, but it has many historical meanings, joining up the two sides... You can walk across it to discover more about Uji. Uji itself is a good place to visit, infamous for its green tea (matcha) production... Go for a green tea ice-cream too! You know you want to!

The bridge offers some lovely, clear views of Uji and its surroundings, and the statue on one side of it is very attractive... it makes for part of a very pleasant walk around a very lovely town. It is also near the Tourist Information centre by the river, which itself is next to a place where you can attend a... More
