Uji Bridge and History in Japan

February 15, 2018

We often hear from our customers that they would like to visit Uji (宇治, a city located in south of Kyoto) city.


Speaking of UjiByodoin Temple which was built in the Heian period, is the most renowned place for many of my readers. However, in fact, Uji was a civilized city since far earlier than that. As the population and the logistics increased, people built a bridge over the Uji river in 646 A.D., in the Asuka period.

The bridge was repeatedly destroyed and washed away because of the rapid flow of the Uji river.  However, this rapid flow has made Uji a field of many legendary battles. In addition, Uji is also famous as the place of long romantic story called The Tale of Genji (源氏物語, Genji Monogatari)


Please visit the Uji bridge and feel the eternal flow of the history.
