Uji River—one of the symbols of Uji
The Uji River which flows through the Uji city, dividing the area into two parts, is one of the symbols of Uji. It's prominent position shapes the beautiful landscape of the town and provides opportunities for repose and recreation. Most of the city’s attractions are within short walks from the river. River cruises and cormorant fishing are popular summer activities. Especially cormorant fishing, which is taken place at the Uji River from around middle June to late September, is a highlight!
