How to get to Kyoto from Narita?

by macz786

I will be visiting kyoto in October for a medical conference. I will be arriving at Narita airport. Please advice what is an efficient and cheaper way to get to Kyoto? Any one out there if willing to offer bed n breakfast or accomodation for 3 days will be appreciated.

The best way to get there from Narita is by train, bullet train (Shinkansen) it's not cheap but it's worthwhile. I do not remember exactly how long does it take... maybe around 5 hours?

Have a good trip,

Hi! Welcome to Japan :-)

Please take a look at the URL below

This tells you which train or bus or plane you should take, how much, how long time...etc.

About the time from Narita to Kyoto (using Shinkansen bullet train), it will take about 4.5 hours.

I & my husband are working every day... so I'm sorry we can't offer you bed & breakfast...
But, if you have free time, it would be great if we could meet up and have coffee or dinner together :-)

Hello again,

Thanks for the information. I guess I have to take bullet train to Kyoto station. Do you know of any moderate priced hotels in Kyoto or if you can provide me with the web site for more information. I will also like to see you guys when I am there.

Hi again!

I & my husband are happy to know you are also interested in Virtual Tourist meeting :-)

Let's discuss when and where to meet up when your trip is closer :-)

By the way, about accommodation in Kyoto,

Kyoto Hostek Tour Club is very very popular among foreign tourists.
It seems quite cheap and convenient and it also has somewhat Japanese atmosphere.
(I've never stayed there, but you will find more info in the web site below)


If you want to stay at an authentic Japanese traditional hotel. then
(Please note: this is far from down town Kyoto)

If you want to stay at Japanese Buddhist temple..then,

I hope you will find a good one :-)

If you are going to Kyoto, it is better to fly to Osaka (Kansai airport) as Kyoto is about 72 minutes by train Haruka Express from this airport. If you must fly to Narita, consider buying a Japan Train pass for one week that costs about $250. Use this to travel to Kyoto via Shinkasen (bullet trains) to and from Narita. If you buy one way SHinkasen ticket from Narita to Kyoto, it will probably cost you over $110, so Japan train pass is the best as you can use this on other trains. You need to buy Japan pass outside of Japan.

If you have questions, just email me. I just return from Kyoto area, and yes I did go to Tokyo using Japan Rail pass.

For accomodation in Kyoto, there are many hotels that can be obtained via the Internet. I really cannot advise more about it.


Travel Tips for Kyoto

In the hyper-colourful...

by Pavlik_NL

In the hyper-colourful Heian-shrine (on a sunny day you can be blinded by the white grit and the bright-orange buildings) are wish-boxes. Make a little sacrifies (by paying a little in the box) and draw a wish out of one of the many little boxes. The text that is on the paper will be your future. Funny thing is that - if you don't like it - you can knott the paper on a tree in the temple and the gods will 'take it back'. According to the trees, the Japanese are not quickly satisfied (-;


by Pichayada about Ponto-cho

Ponto-cho is a famous narrow street, located between Kamogawa (gawa=river) and Kiyamachi street. Many restaurants and night clubs here. I went there with a Japanese friend, Rumi, and her dad on her Ph.D ceremony. We had a Kyoto style dinner at Ponto-Cho. The resturant allowed us to see the Kamogawa view at night. Food also was delicious. Sake tasted perfect. I could not remember the name of the restuarant but it just located about a few resturants if you enter Ponto-cho from Sanjo station side. After that we went in Russian bar, I and Rumi tried russian beer for the first time. Taste was Excellent!! Normal dress.

Nishi Hongan-ji Temple

by dabuwan

The Nishi Hongan-ji temple is a religious complex close to the modern Kyoto centre, not far from the railway station. It has been build in the 16th century and it is now still very popular with local people. It is a Shin Buddhist temple (Shinran Shonin in the 13th century founded this religious movement).

the Ninomaru Garden

by Zirpsis

One of the most scenic gardens I've seen. Built in 1603, every rock was brought here from different areas of Japan. All the islands of the pond were given names and meanings. Horai jima (Island of Eternal Happiness), Tsurujima (Crane Island), and Kame jima (Turtle Island). It's really beautiful and worth a visit.
