Walking along Uji River

On a hot summer day!

By Susan Tumanon    - 1 min read

The Uji River is often associated with the Japanese novel "The Tale of Genji". This beautiful river was the setting for the famous Japanese novel. I lived in Kyoto for a year and a half, but wasn't able to see  Uji city. This summer I finally got  the chance and wasn't disappointed. Definitely a must see place specially during cherry blossom and autumn season.

I have always been fascinated with the Japanese culture so I pursued that fascination and came to Japan. I am finally living my dream and enjoying every moment of it. I lived in Kyoto for a year and a half and recently moved to Kanagawa. There is so much to discover in Japan. Come join me in my adventure.
