Welcome to UJI
The city of Uji is centrally located around the beautiful Uji River, and is graced with many temples and shrines, which is indicative of Uji city's long history and rich culture.
You can also find here two UNESCO World Heritage sites:Ujigami Shrine and Byodoin Temple registered in December, 1994.
Between the 15th and 16th centuries, this area was the location of many battles as various Shogun's fought for control of Japan.
When you read Japanese classics such as "Nihon-Shoki"(the Chronicles of Japan) and "Manyoshu" (the Anthology of Myriad), you can find the Uji name, which is also the main setting for the "Ten Chapters of Uji" in The Tale of Genji, the oldest and one of the most famous love stories in the world.
Since that time, Uji has enjoyed many peaceful years and has become a cultural center of Japan, growing in size and beauty each year. Uji city has many historical sights and famous cultural specialties.
Uji Green Tea is the best and most famous Japanese Tea. Please enjoy it in traditional tea houses and ceremonies.
Experiencing the traditional green tea service is the essence of Japanese culture and history.
Enjoy this tradition at Taihoan, the municipal tea ceremony house which offers a beautiful view of the Uji River. Another cultural experience you should not miss is Oubakusan Manpukuji Temple, home to one of Japan's three Zen sects (the Oubakuso Sect), and Mimurotoji Temple which is the tenth pilgrimage point('fuda-sho') of 33 regularly visited temples in the Western part of Japan.
The atmosphere of by-gone eras permeates all these properties. Enjoy them !

My name is Takuji Yamamoto.
I'm running Ryokan(Japanese style hotel) as a owner in Uji city.
My Ryokan is located on south sberb of Kyoto city and just by the river called Uji river with magnificent view. All rooms that I am providing at Airbnb is in the Ryokan.
What is a Ryokan?
Kyoto, once prospering as the nation's capital for over 1,200 years is the city of arts, tradition and history. Kyoto plays a significant role in the identity of Japanese people. Experience this authentic part of Japan in a Ryokan.
Why do Japanese people feel most comfortable on Tatami floors?
Why do Japanese people from outside Kyoto praise Japanese food in Kyoto?
Why is it difficult for Japanese people on vacation to decide whether to stay in a hotel or a Ryokan when they come to Kyoto?
Kyoto is the city where Japanese people can reassure their ethnicity and remember the most important things about being Japanese.
In a Ryokan, get more out of the basic necessities in life; food, shelter and clothing. An experience different from the common hotel. A Ryokan is an accommodation facility original to the owners taste, influenced by Japanese culture, style and feel. A service that can't be found anywhere else in the world; only here in Japan.
Don't miss the opportunity to experience a deeper Japan.
