Transport to and from Ohara

by JohanIsWeg

My research indicates public transport is available via Kyoto City Bus 17 from Kyoto Station for Ohara. Just wondering whether it will be the same bus for the return journey from Ohara to Kyoto? Any experiences with returning from Ohara to Kyoto?

From JR Kyoto station, take city bus 17 or 18 to Ohara. It would take 55-60 min since the it takes you through the city centre. It's best to buy a round ticket at the bus terminal in Kyoto. They'll give you which bus to take back from Ohara to Kyoto, and the time table.
During the winter, some bus routes reduce the number of runs, so it's good to find out what's available before you leave for Ohara.

The buses in Kyoto all run on scheduled loops, so if the #17 bus takes you to Ohara, it will also take you back from Ohara to the city.

Travel Tips for Kyoto

Food, food and more food

by arianne_1504

Are you hungry yet? No. How about now? No. And now? No. Are you peckish yet? No. What about some food? No.
I had to laugh at the amount of food shops in Kyoto! Every second shop sold food! The above conversation was a running joke of ours in Kyoto. You will NEVER go hungry in Kyoto!

`half price'

thats what the banner reads i was told.
this banner and other similar sights-- with the economy in a downward spial-- they are becoming more commonplace now--- unheard of in japan until now i would guess...

Getting around Kyoto.

by worldkiwi

Kyoto has a pretty limited subway system (although I was told when there in 2006 that it is going to be extended), but a very extensive bus network. The problems with the buses are that they are slow (often stuck in traffic) and stop frequently at every stop on their designated route. Finding the bus stops for certain routes can sometimes be a bit tricky. Note that bus stops are designated to particular buses only. However, the route network is very convenient, allowing passengers to get just about anywhere with the minimum of transfers. Important bus services for the tourist to Kyoto include the 101 and 102 express buses, which move between major tourist stops without stopping at every bus stop on the way! Many services originate and terminate at the Kyoto JR station.
Board the bus at the rear. Pay when you get off. Most tourists will be in the JPY220 (as at 2006) fare zone, which covers the main city area.

Cafe Chourakukan

by Gili_S

This place is just in one of the parks in the city, a fantastic Cafe & Restaurant Vienna style since 1909 :) After a long half day session of visiting all the temples and sites in July while it is 30c outside, this was very welcome place to have our lunch break, enjoy the air-conditioning and very good cold drinks.

Nanzenji Temple is a former aristocratic retirement villa that was turned into a temple on the death of its owner.
This palace was built by the emperor Kameyama during 1264, later, the emperor himself became a student of the zen master Kokushi and, in 1291 he dedicated the palace as a zen temple.
It's opened from 8.40 untill 4.30 pm and the ticket price is 400 yen.
