Uji is a city bounded by immense traditions. Most visitors are attracted to this divine city because of the sacred Buddhist temples. Temples are admired everywhere the eye turns and all along the Uji river. It’s an amazing place for people in search of Japanese culture and tradition.
If you are teaching English in another city in Japan, the best time to visit Uji is at the end of the year. This is when the mild weather enhances the experience of a place best known for meditation.
Teaching English in Japan is a formidable experience. A high speed train can take you away from some of the most modern cities in the world to the peaceful gardens of a thousand year old temple. Start your TESOL course and begin an exciting new career!
