It will take about 1 and a half hour if you take JR Haruka from Kyoto Sta. to Kansai Airport Sta. (3690yen), about 1 hour 45 mins by bus (2300yen).

It will be cheaper for buying return ticket for bus, 3800yen.

I never book hotel in Osaka, i think the other VT'ers will respond.

Cheers,
Rita

Hello,

The Kansai express take about 1 hour to travel from Kyoto to KIX (Kansai Airport) or vice versa. 2 or 3 trains depart durning normal hours

I typically stay in Kyoto not Osaka so I'm not sure about hotels there.

Regards,

Travel Tips for Kyoto

Very Classy People

by VolsUT

The residence of Kyoto are almost too classy. They are outstandingly friendly they go out of their way to do nice things for non locals. In Japan more then anywhere I've been prople are willing to help you. I was told what direction to go many times and went the wrong was and people behind the ticket booth would come running after me and tell me where to go! Almost anywhere else people would have just watched you go the wrong way.

Narrow Streets of Gion

by bkoon about Gion Area

The narrow streets of Gion is pretty interesting. My guess is that this is the red light district which I took a picture off. It is because I saw a lot of pimps trying to get people to patronise teir joint.

TOP CLASS FOOD SERVICE

by bluestarkc about TSURUYA

Classification of Food Establishment:
Casual Dining & Bistro

Another very famous, very expensive Kyoto kaiseki restaurant with top-class food and service. One kaiseki dinner can consist of anywhere from 6 to 15 different kinds of food. For example:
"shiizakana" (appetizers served with Japanese sake)
"mukouzuke" (sashimi - slices of raw fish)
"kuchitori" (a small side dish)
"suimono" (a soup)
"nimono" (simmered vegetables)
"aemono" (food dressed with sauce)
"kounomono" (Japanese pickles)
"hassun" (food from the mountains and the sea)
"sunomono" (food marinated in vinegar)
"yakimono" (grilled fish)
"mushimono" (steamed food)
"nabemono" (Japanese hot pot)
rice
miso soup
dessert
The kind of food served will change according to the different months, seasons and what is freshly available at the local market. It is also depends on the area. For example, a kaiseki served in February in Kyushu would be different than a kaiseki served February in northern Honshu.

Courtesy of J-PD, Geneva, SwitzerlandIt is said that kaiseki is a meal at one with nature. In fact, guests will often find such things from nature as flowers and leaves adorning the food. The ingredients are natural, of high quality and chosen according to the season. Most important of all, the ingredients are all freshly served.

The kaiseki menu changes throughout the year, and the cycle of change begins in November when the year's first tea is ready for grinding. This year is divided into 12 months, and both the food and the tableware reflect the changing months and seasons.

Located near Heian Shrine, they're known for their more-lavish-than-usual gardens, which can be viewed while you're dining. Dinner menus start at Y38,000, but you can try their non-kaiseki seasonal lunch sets for around Y8000, a relative bargain. (Regular kaseki lunch is Y15,000).

Open 11:30am-2, 5-7pm (LO) daily.

Geisha Glimpse

by Logan575

While walking around Gion in the rain, we suddenly were passed by a real geisha, elegantly tip-tapping along under her colorful umbrella. With only 200 in the city, this was a rare treat, and from what I understand, a sign of good luck. Unfortunately, none of us could yank our cameras out in time and not look like complete idiots. Later in the day we went past a "Be a Geisha for $40.00" store and tried to make due with a copy.

Don't miss the gardens

by trvlrtom

The Nijo Castle deserves its reputation as one of the highlights of Kyoto. Most likely if you are in the city you will visit it. The buildings are impressive and worth every moment you spend there, but don't skip the gardens either.

There are three of them: the Seiryu-en, the Green garden, and the Ninomaru, each different and special in their own way. The Seiryu-en has two parts, one with a large pone in the Japanese style, and the other with a spacious lawn mostly in the Western style. The large Ninomaru garden goes way back in time, with several small island in the pond. It's also worthwhile to walk along the path on the west and south sides of Honmaru, where there are cherry tree and plum tree groves, exceptional in their respective seasons.
