Uji Shrine is located in a small village near to Uji timber bridge. The place is quiet and peaceful as differed from other commercial areas. We liked the atmosphere around and recommended to others during their visit to Uji.
On a visit to Byoden-in you will want to visit Ujigami Shrine, one of the oldest in Japan, and while you are at Ujigami, say hello to its next-door neighbor, Uji Shrine. It was built to console the sole of a Prince who committed suicide...More
Uji Shrine is small if compared with that of Ujigami Jinja but you still can have a leisure stroll around and take pictures of the shrine. We saw a pair of visitor taking wedding photos at the frontage during our visit to the shrine late...More

There is nothing unusual about this shrine, but it's in a pleasant spot, in a lovely town, and is en route to the oldest shrine in Japan as well as a worthwhile walk up to a lookout across Uji. Worth a visit when you go...More
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the
mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
