If you use public transport, you can take a Keihan bus from either JR Uji, Keihan Uji, or Kintetsu Shin-Tanabe station, and then change to a local community bus. The trip will take around an hour, and there’s usually only one bus per hour, and you need to note that the community bus gives priority to local people so there is a possibility that you may not be able to take it.
