World Heritage: Ujigami Shrine4.0
This old shrine stands in quietude near the Uji River and is considered a guardian shrine of the nearby Byodoin Temple. The main hall has a curved asymmetrical roof extending more on one side, a typical architectural style commonly seen in Shinto shrines. It is listed as one of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kyoto.

It's a really small complex, and although it consists of some UNESCO World Heritage-recognised buildings, it wasn't particularly interesting unless you really enjoy and appreciate the difference in architecture from the different style between all the periods of Japan. Then again, the place is free to visit for all, and is not too far away from another World Heritage Site, Byodoin, so go ahead and check out this shrine, which is designated as the guardian shrine of Byodoin.

Recommended if you combine it with a walk through the mountains and a visit to the famous tea shops in town.

A shrine dedicated to a rabbit prince. More spiritual than Uji shrine 😇
