The main attraction at the Byodoin Temple is the Phoenix Hall for which an additional admission fee is charged. The tickets are sold for a certain visitation time that lasts for half an hour as they control the amount of people that going in. The place is not difficult to find when you come out of Uji station (either JR Nara line or Keihan line) to make your way to Byodoin Temple. There are clear signs pointing the way. Just try not to get distracted by the many shops along the way. #givethanks

I went to Nakamura Fujimoto to experience Ishigaki Mocha to Nakamura Fujimoto. I experienced Shih Tzu Mocha Uji City's tea shop. There were dozens of tea shops in Uji City. When I first came here, it suddenly rained and I felt a cool feeling. The plan is to go to Nakamura Fujiji, which was founded in 1854. This shop was built during the Meiji period. You can experience the use of stone shoji to match the tea, and then enjoy a snack while enjoying a cup of tea or light tea. The tea room has desserts, matcha soba noodles and more. The hot buckwheat noodles are soft and feel a bit unaccustomed. Address: Uji, Yuji City, Kyoto Prefecture

"What is Uji in addition to Matcha? These places are not to be missed. // Uji City (Japanese: ) is a villa of Japanese peaceful aristocrats. It is the stage of ancient wars and the main stage of the story of Genji Monogatari. Uji, both the historical sedimentation and the taste of fresh petty bourgeoisie. Compared to the bustling Kyoto, Uji is a real small town. Enter the Uji Matcha Shop, enjoy the dance of the taste buds, walk into the Uji Shrine, and listen to the echoes of history. In the afternoon, explore various types of matcha food in Uji; after the rain, listen to his story in Uji. Spring cherry blossoms, summer fireworks, autumn tea festivals, winter snow, there is always a moment to make you fall in love with it. Address: Uji City, Kyoto Prefecture, Japan, located in the south of Kyoto Prefecture. Attractions: 1Equality Hall. The early Japanese wooden architecture was built along the Uji River in Kyoto. The garden is full of cherry blossoms, rhododendrons and lotus flowers, and the wisteria is full in May. Friends who want to go can spend the flowering time to enjoy the flowers. 2. The Uji Seon Shrine, built in the late Heian period, has been included in the World Cultural Heritage List. But it is just a small shrine with lots of little rabbits. 3 Uji Park (Wind Park). Although it is a park, it has really achieved five steps and one scene, ten steps and one painting. The two sides of the spring road are full of cherry blossoms, and you can also go boating in the lake. 4 Wuyuan Story Museum. The only Genji Story Museum in the world can experience the Genji Story Culture. Shop recommendation: 1 Matcha Republic. A dessert shop selling matcha, the net red shop on the ins, the most famous should be the matcha packaged matcha dessert, it should be the must-have card shop. 2. A hundred-year-old shop, a dessert shop frequented by locals, the dessert is not sweet. In general, you can try the taste of the locals. 3 Ito is a long guard. Backed by the source of Genji, it is also a dessert shop that mainly deals with Matcha. The gift of Matcha desserts in the store can bring the sweetness of this matcha to the favorite people! "Uji, not only Matcha, but also his own cultural charm.

In Uji, I made a matcha, and it was rare to experience it. Take the Keihan tram from Tohoji Station and go straight to Uji. I took a trip in Zhongshudao Station and arrived smoothly. People who like matcha are no strangers to Uji. From Uji Station, you can see large and small matcha shops. The kind of green, slightly bitter, delicate and sweet drink makes the taste addictive, so I am coming! Approximately 10 minutes walk from Uji Station along the scenic Uji River, walk to the Chaowu Bridge and arrive at the Fushouyuan Uji Tea Workshop. In the "100-year-old shop" Matcha classroom, which opened in 1790, it took 40 minutes to experience the whole process of making matcha with stone grinding. Use the stone mill for 15 minutes to slowly grind the green tea into a fine powder and collect it. After fine grinding, the matcha powder is presented, and the color is really beautiful. Put half of the matcha powder into the pottery bowl, mix it with water and matcha powder, and then stir it up and down with a special bamboo brush until the surface of the matcha is evenly foamed. Ah, everything is ready, one person's matcha is done. After delighting to drink the first matcha, the teacher instructed to guide us also brought a small snack with matcha, indicating that we can use the remaining matcha powder and make a snack together. Eat snacks, slowly match the tea, feel happy, after all, it is made by yourself! The last picture starts from the left: push the stone mill, sieve the tea, add water and stir the matcha. Make a matcha tea, pay attention to a stable, no hurry to become a Address: Uji City Uji Yamada 10th place opening hours: store and tea room business hours 10

Uji | Any tea shop is very delicate time in Uji is really my favorite, probably because I am the matcha control! There are many world famous Matcha brands, most of them are crowded with waiting people, but there are many small matcha shops, which are very pleasant surprises - I dont understand the name of this matcha shop. [Tears] opened at the entrance of the Equal House, the inside is too pleasant, a small thatched house shape, all three small boxes, very quiet and comfortable - a matcha 600 yen, there is The bowler is playing with matcha and matcha balls, and chatting quietly with friends, its too comfortable.
