This road on the way to the Byodo-in has many tea merchants and unless you know which GREEN tea you want it will be a hit or miss. There is much activity on this street for it seems everyone that visits Uji uses it.
On of the nicest streets in Uji. Lots of people which added to the atmosphere. Lots of tea shops and cafe's with a mix of souvenir shops. Even if you are not interested in the shops it is a pleasant street just to stroll down.
Uji is famous for its matcha and this street leading to the Byodoin Temple is lined with many tea houses and shops selling everything matcha. We were spoilt for choices as we wanted to try and buy all the delicious looking goodies.
A street with almost all uji matcha products of all brands there, a bit touristy but definitely a full collection of uji tea and matcha products! I personally prefer the small stores selling tea accessories like tea pot and cup! Japanese craftsmanship always amaze people!

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.
