Does anyone know where......

by leasyloo

Does anyone know where i might be able to find a hotel room or an apartment with a kitchen in it? My sister and i are travelling to Japan, ive found a place in Tokyo but i cant find one in Kyoto i only need it for 2 weeks and i cant afford any more than 15,000 yen a night. If anyone can help id appreciate it.

Does it have to have a kitchen? Check out this link:

The Kyoto Garden, for example, is well within your budget and you can probably eat out every night. Don't know of any serviced apartments in that price range...maybe over in Osaka, but not Kyoto.

Try looking at the classifieds in Kansai Flea Market. You may be able to find a short term rental.

Good luck! :)

Travel Tips for Kyoto


by VolsUT

Pichino is a popular game in Japan it is a casino style game played with small metal balls. The more balls you get the better things you get when you win. It is illegal in Japan to gamble for money but many pichinko players do it under the table.


by naruto about Kyoto Temples and Shrines

After visiting many of Kyoto's temples and shrines, a great souvenir to bring back from each is their temple/shrine talisman. Each place have talisman for various reason - easy childbirth, good exam results, good health, etc. They are cute, colorful and practical, and also cheap. A few hundred yens or couple of US$, depending on size of the talismans.

Kyoto Bus System

by SLLiew

I am surprised that there are time schedules of the bus arrival at the bus stop and that the bus arrives on time even during rush hours. A very convenient way to go around Kyoto to the various temples.

Enter the bus in front and if press a button to get a number. You will pay according to the number and where you get off. The next stop will be announced and will be displayed too.

A good opportunity to practise your Japanese, just try to remember the name of your destination or have it written in Japanese characters.

Generally fare within city is 220 Yen for adults and 110 years for children 6-12 years old.

Remember to ask where is the right bus stop so that you do not wait in vain.

Kiyomizo temple


a magnificient temple which offers a breathtaking view of the city. This temple is surrounded by trees and cherry blossoms, as soon as you enter you'll be amazed by the awesome architecture and beautiful landscapes. at the entrance you will be greeted by a (forgive me for a lack of a better word) cute little buddha which i was told is supposed to bring good luck. Within walking distance is a pagoda which is also a great sight to behold. Just be prepared for a big crowd because this is a very popular tourist site. Kiyomizo temple honors the 11 faced Kannon, Goddess of Mercy, this temple is also a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The orange Torii

by cheesecake17

What makes FUSHIMI INARI special is the beautiful walking course up the mountain. The path is lined with thousands of orange Torii (gates) and has several quaint, smaller shrines on the way.

The hike is 4km long and takes about 2-3 hours..
Inari is the Shinto god of rice and sake, two essential commodities both in the culture and history of trade and life in Japan. With the rise of industry and the diminishing importance of agriculture, the role of Inari shrines has grown to represent success and prosperity in business.

Traditionally, prayers were made at Inari shrines for a good harvest, nowadays, Fushimi Inari Shrine draws thousands of business and tradespeople seeking blessings for their enterprises..

Each of the 10,000 tori gate are donated by worshippers or companies whose name and addresses are written on the back. Considering the profile of the shrine, it is not surprising to find that almost every well-known Japanese company has sponsored a Tori gate here.

Prices vary with size, ranging from the small 30cm high torii to the 3m tall ones..

Visite the shrine in the late afternoon as the sun slowly sets can be a thrilling experience and scary too..:)..

The 4km walk through the torii tunnel to the top of the Inari-san hill can be a strenuous one, especially in the heat of summer. Two large ponds and several small waterfalls can be found in the maze of torii, depending on which path you decide to follow..
When you reach to the top of the mountain side a good view of Kyoto can be appreciated
