Uji, Kyoto

8/February/2023 in Kyoto

3 days ago I visited Kyoto's southern town, Uji

Probably the best day since I came to Kyoto

Uji is well-known for a magnificent temple, called Byodoin

Also Uji is a place that many of country's culture was connected with

such as "The Tale of Genji" the oldest novel

When seeing the Uji river, anyone can immediately realise it is this river that produced cultures & enriched them

Many years passed

Many centuries passed

But still memory of cultural prosperity is vividly visible here
