“Mikaeriusagi”, a messenger from god that guides people to the right paths, is located next to the enshrined deity. Uji-Shrine is a shrine that is popular among the local people as Uji’s guardian deity of people’s birthplaces.

Through the vermilion-colored Torii (gateway to a shrine) located on the base of Asagiri bridge on the upper streams of Uji bridge, Uji-Shrine awaits visitors with many trees surrounding the area. It is said to be Ujinowakeiratsuko’s historical site.
Long time ago, it was called Rikyu Hachimangu. Ujinowakeiratsuko, the enshrined deity, was very intelligent, pursued in many studies under the direction of tutors and teachers, such as Achiki (an emissary sent from Paekche) and Wang Jin, and is still adored as a god of studies and successful exams. The main shrine is an early Kamakura period style building and designated as an important cultural property. Aside from this, many important cultural artifacts, such as a wooden Komainu (a lion-dog guardian) and Hakukijo (masks), can be seen at Uji-Shrine.
