Oharai Machi(village) is located outside of the Naiku shrine ground, and running alongside the river downstream from the Uji Bridge.
O-harai Machi has been developed as a commercial district over the years to cater to pilgrims visiting the shrine.
Most of the buildings lined on the main street have a Japanese traditional style, especially architecture style of the Edo period (extending from the 17th to 19th centuries).
You will enjoy the Edo period atmosphere there, and will see many kinds of products, ranging from mobile phone straps to boxes of sweets, pickles and preserved fish to take back to the folks at home.
This area is the home of a famous sweet shop Akafuku.
You can enjoy Akafuku-mochi, which is made of red bean paste with mochi or glutinous rice cake in the center.
