Story & Recommendation
The Ujigawa River Cherry Blossom Festival heralds the arrival of spring to Uji
Uji is famous for Byodo-in Temple and tea, and every year in April the Ujigawa River Cherry Blossom Festival is held here in Uji. When the 2000 cherry trees lining both sides of the river from the Uji Bridge are in full bloom, there are events held on Prefectural Uji Park on Nakanoshima Island in the middle of the river. The park is lined with food stalls, and there is a market where you can buy Uji’s famous pottery. Beside this you can enjoy hanami flower viewing on a boat, so there is a lot to see at this festival! You can enjoy shopping and snacks, all the while looking at beautiful cherry trees of Uji, so if you go to Uji during the cherry blossom season I heartily recommend this festival!
