【About Uda City (奈良県宇陀市)】
For historians and nature lovers alike, Uda City is a fantastic place to live and work. Full of idyllic, beautiful terraced rice fields and traditional architecture, the city is just over an hour from Nara City itself, and offers its own flavor of ancient Japan. There are many shrines, temples, and the ruins of Uda castle to explore; there's the Buddha Stone Statures Pilgrimage route to traverse, and there's even a 2000-year-old cedar tree and 900-year-old sakura trees to see. And that's just the beginning- waterfalls, farmland, mountain paths and much more await you in this scenic city!
