Without a traffic jam, 35-40 min by bus.
Click this link, scroll down and you'll see "Route Map" at the bottom. Though you cannot print it out nicely (data size is too big for regular printers), you can check bus routes in Kyoto and transfer between major tourist spots.

Re: Required time from Kyoto JR station to Kinkakuji (Golden Pavilion) by Bus


Anothet Idea. See four temples in one morning.
Take the Karassuma subway north to Karassuma Oike Sta.
Go west on the Harkyu Kyoto line to Omiya Sta.( warning - some of these trains are express and do not stop at Omiya-If you get on an exprees you do see the city but you will have to return ). At Omiya Sta. get on the Keifu Arashiyama line and go to the last station, Arashiyama.There you can visit Tenryuji. Then take that same LRT line to Omuro Ninnaji Sta. where the Ninnaji Tempel is within a short walk. You can then walk east, 10 min, to Ryoanji. You can then bus or taxi to Kinkajui. Return on the same lines. Start early because you may want more time at each temple.It's a good selection of Temples.

Travel Tips for Kyoto

World Heritage Sites

by Rabbityama

In 1994, 17 sites were together designated UNESCO Heritage sites under the title "Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto". This includes two sites in Uji (Byodoin Temple and Ujigami Shrine) and one in Otsu (Enryakuji Temple on Mount Hiei).

The 14 sites found in Kyoto are:
-Kiyomizu Temple
-Shimogamo Shrine
-Kamigamo Shrine
-Nishi Honganji Temple
-Toji Temple
-Kinkakuji Temple
-Ryoanji Temple
-Ninnaji Temple
-Kozanji Temple
-Nijo Castle
-Daigoji Temple
-Ginkakuji Temple
-Tenryuji Temple

Anyone feeling overwhelmed by the number of sites may want to start by looking up these sites. Most of them are very popular, although some are actually less often visited by foreign tourists, such as Kozanji Temple, Kamigamo Shrine, and Daigoji Temple, but these are each great sites! I personally felt that Nishi Honganji Temple was the least impressive, but everyone has their own opinions!

At the very least, you can be confident that the sites have historical significance and most date back hundreds of years.

You can see lots of food and food materials in Nishiki Market. Some of them are used for only Japanese dishes. It must be fun to look around the shop which are typically Japanese. At the end of the year, many local people come to the market to get some food materials for traditional Japanese cuisine of New Year's day called 'Osechi-ryori'. I bought several materials for osechi myself.

JR Rail train travel around Kyoto

by BorderHopper

Because I don't recall all of the details from our travels around Japan I'll include a brief explanation regarding train travel around Kyoto which I've referenced from the Lonely Planet Kyoto guidebook (an excellent source if you're planning a trip to Japan).
There are several options for getting around Kyoto by train. For South Western Kyoto take the JR Tokaido Line, the JR San-In line runs into Western Kyoto, and the JR Nara Line runs into southern Kyoto and then onward into the city of Nara.

Yabusame Festival

by smartidea

originated from the archery training of horseback warriors, and during the Kamakura Period (1185-1392) it was institutionalized in festival form. The main festival has been conducted here on September 19th of every year since 1440. In the early years, the villages of Shimoyoshida and Katsuyama held the event together at the 2nd station of Mt. Fuji, but a feud developed between them. Therefore, each village began holding theri own separate festivals. Fujiyoshida's Yabusame Festival is different from those of other parts of Japan in both its symbolism and its practices.

by Geisha_Girl

When visiting Kyoto, one must make a visit to the Geisha district of Gion, known as the 'birthplace of the Geisha.' Here you can view blocks of beautiful old tea houses and catch glimpses of Geisha life.

Here we ran into some 'Geishas-in-training' entertaining an American traveler while the curious old fellow on the right pays them no mind......
