Because of its scenic landscape, Uji thrived in the Heian Period as a resort of vacation villas for the aristocracy. Evidence thereof is found in Byodo-in Temple, which has been registered as a World Heritage. The area is also known as the setting for The Tale of Genji. On this course, you can enjoy another World Heritage in Ujigami-jinja Shrine and, for tea aficionados, there is tea-making to experience at the Fukujuen Ujikobo.
In Fushimi, an area known for sake brewing, you can see the process of sake brewing through exhibits at the Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum.
And, the view of the convergence point of the Katsura, Uji and Kizu Rivers is fantastic from Oyamazaki Villa Museum of Art where works by Kanjiro Kawai and Claude Monet are on display.
