You can take a suitcase with you and go by train, but don't go during rush hour. You can always take a taxi but taxis are really expensive. I wouldn't recommend that.

yeap.. just take a Train. you might wanna bring a chain to lock your luggage against to something at the Luggage deposit area of the train.

If you can carry your "big luggage" then take subways in either city and the train between Osaka and Kyoto. Forget buses with luggage. A taxi from Osaka to Kyoto could cost 15,000 yen......!!

Train or shinkansen if you have a JR pass. Very fast. One big luggage is not a pblm during off peak hrs

You could always arrange for your luggage to go in the Takuhai service (delivery service). Its not all that expensive and u can arrange to have ur luggage collect from most hotels, convenience stores or airports etc. It is usually overnight service and it cost my husband and I 1990yen to send ours from tokyo to kagoshima so i dont think it will cost that much from osaka to kyoto. This way u will be travelling stress free.

Travel Tips for Kyoto

Hned po vychode zo zeleznicnej...

by renuschka

Hned po vychode zo zeleznicnej stanice, okom zabludite na krasnu televiznu vezu, ktora sa vypina oproti vchodu do stanice. Potom vam uz nezostava nic ine ako vybrat sa tym spravnym smerom k historickym pamatihodnostiam mesta.

A hiking route up the hills on the East side of Kyoto, Daimon-ji-yama leads to a superb viewpoint of the whole of the city.

The trail starts from the northern end of the "Philosophers Path", and it is well sign posted, but only in Kanji so those who can't understand (like me!) are better of with a guide book.

It is the perfect way to combine seeing the other superb temples along the eastern edge of Kyoto, and the foot of the hills.

Kyoto is the only city where I preferred moving around with busses than with underground.May be because I stayed close to the railway station where most busses leave from.
You can take the bus without ticket and pay when you get down, just near the driver and usually the ticket is 210 yen.
The best option anyway is buying a daily ticket wich is 500 yen, youvalidate it the first time you use the bus during the day and then just show it to the bus driver.

Small, cosy, cheap (around 400 - 500 yen for okonomiyaki). Friendly atmosphere. Run by women that have been doing this for years. When I visited Kyoto in March this year, I found out, to my horror, that my favourite okonomiyaki restaurant, Koharu (a favourite with Kyoto uni students), was burnt down not long ago. Farewell, Koharu! There is another similar restarant next door which served tasty okonomiyaki, but it just wasn't as dirty as Koharu. The people that I took there will know what I mean. Okonomiyaki of course...modanyaki (okonomiyaki + yakisoba)...and beer

How to meet Maiko

by felicitywu

The place you must not miss is GION when you are visiting to Kyoto.

I have heard Gion was famous as an entertainment and red-district area in the 17th century under the special permissionn and that's why it's the best area of Kyoto preserves the atmosphere of olden times, and Kimono-clad maiko and Geisha.

Unluckily, I didn't see any Maiko, and it's not esay to meet at all. But I do see some restaurant with the half-curtain hung up at the entrance written "Maiko" " meeting" , and I guess that's the modern kind of Cha-ya, which is the place holding dinner party and maiko performance at the same time.
Last one thing in mind, this place can be really really expensive, about 100,000 yen ( almost 1000 US$) per guest, and you can not visit without an introduction.
