Uji Green Tea

uji green teaUji Green Tea - Uji was an important stop along the road between Nara and Kyoto, and was the setting for the world's oldest novel, The Tale of Genji (源氏物語 Genji Monogatari). In order to get to either Kyoto or Nara, this bridge in Uji was crossed.

To the left you can see a copy of an original print of the famous bridge that crosses the Uji river, and next to it is the Tsuen tea shop. After 850 plus years of being in business, the Tsuen tea shop continues to operate at the same location and remains the oldest tea shop in Japan.
