Traveling around Uji, Japan (Part 2)

food, travel

Hi Everyone,

Continuing on from the last blog, if you are a tea lover, you definitely need to come to Uji in particular, Byodoin Omotesando.

There are many tea stores, dessert stores, restaurants all sell items linked to green tea. Its  like a green tea wonderland! As you walk along the main shopping trip, do check out some the stores in particular – a famous tea shop called Itohkyuemon (伊藤久右衛門). It is by far the most popular and had the largest variety on the strip. I will take you for a visit in another blog.

At Byodoin Omotesando, not only you see a line of shops and restaurants, it is also the way to the famous Byodoin (will share in future posts)

Also the strip has the famous Starbuck branch (will share in future posts)


This is the large Tori gate where it leads you to Byodoin Omotesando


When you are walking around and about, do look for some cute statues or signages.


While I was shopping and browsing around, my other half decided to get a box of green tea dessert. Nicely packaged and the dessert itself was very green teay (is there such a word? haha)
