Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kansai / Kyoto Prefecture / Uji / Byodoin Omote-sando
In the green tea capital of the country, you'll find Byodoin Omote-sando, a historic stone paved street by the river brimming with tea shops and eateries. The city has been heavily associated with quality tea production for hundreds of years, with many opportunities to sample the fabled produce along the roa. Tea shops roast their leaves facing onto the street, so all you need do is follow your nose. Other shops sell tea-related items, and if you're hungry, search among the eateries for a shop selling green tea-infused soba. Check out the desert and confectionery shops selling refreshing "matcha" ice cream, made from a powdered form of the tea.
