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.

This is a small little shrine next to Ujigami Shrine, and along the Uji River. Not a must see as its just average but if you are visiting Ujigami, can just take a quick look at this.

Uji shrine looks smaller and older than Ujigami. Rabbit omikuji is shaped different from Ujigami's. It's turned back to care of you as if you walk behind, not get lost.

This shrine was a small one very near to the river side but the area was very quite and peaceful that you still liked to stroll around the area to take photos and to admire the atmosphere around.

This is the "pre shrine" before the oldest shrine in Japan, the Ujigami jinja. There's a nice long walk leading to the shrine. The priest at the shrine was not at all nice when I had my nokyocho stamped.

Uji is a small town in Kyoto and this should be what you expect here. It's small, quiet and untouristic. Nothing spectacular.

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
