Places to stay in Kyoto

by hodruss

We will be going to Japan for the first time this May. We will be spending 8-9 days in Kyoto and would like some reccomendations on places to stay. We are on a rather tight budget would like to spend around $150 US per night for the two of us. I have heard about the Ryokans and they sound very interesting, although I am not sure I would be comofortable with the baths. Maybe we'll try that for a couple days and spend the other nights in a more western style hotel. Any reccomendation for either would be greatly appreciated.

If your budget is really tight, try the international youth hostel, cannot remember the name. There is one that has no age limit in Kyoto and no need to buy any hostel card. You can get there by bus from downtown. Kyoto bus service is excellent and buses arrival times on the bus stand are to the minute. Save your money on admission cost to the many temples, Gion Center to see the cultural show, transport cost and Japanese wonderful noodles and obento.

If you are going or coming to Kyoto from Tokyo, there is a overnight bus and so save on accommodation.

I can really recommend the place we stayed at during our 6 nights in Kyoto in the beginning of March this year. The name is Tour Club. It will only cost you approx. 65 usd for 2 persons/night. The place is simple but nice and clean and is fantastically located near the central station! For this money you will have a small but cozy private room with bath and WC but w/o breakfast. There are a lot of reviews here at VT. Check it and if you have questions you can mail me.

Travel Tips for Kyoto

Learn to say a few phrases of Kyoto dialect

by Confucius

Make your stay in Kyoto and the Kansai area more enjoyable by using local expressions whenever appropriate.

Inevitably a kind native may ask, "Kyan you supeeku Japaneezu?" or "Kyan you yuzu choppusticky?" Your reply should humbly be: Ma, bochi bochi ya na which means "so-so" and sounds just like authentic Kansai "ben" (Kansai dialect) which is used in and around Kyoto.

You'll be the star of the show wherever you go if you can remember some of the following phrases in Kyoto:

*
Okini ni = Thank you
Honma ni = Really
Ohayo san = Good morning
Umai na! = It's delicious!
Kyoto honma ni kirei dosu na = Kyoto is really beautiful
Kino na, Himeji ikahatte, naa = Yesterday I went to Himeji
Doko e ikaharun desu ka? = Where are you going?
Nara ikiyoshi! = You should go to Nara!
Nani shi-taharu no? What are you doing?
Sonna koto yu-tore-hen! = I didn't say that!
Uchi mo yose ten ka? = May I join in?
Kamahen kamahen = I don't mind at all
Kore nanbo? = How much is this?
Mo sukoshi makete kurehen? = Can you drop the price a little?
Hona, sainara = In that case, I'm out of here
Honja, mata na! = See you later, alligator!

Buying kimono patterned stuff

by yukisanto

You'll find these all around. Those brightly coloured patterned cloth bags, puches, tissue holder etc. What I discovered was the same thing can be bought for much cheaper on Shijo street, compared to places near the tourist spots and other bigger cities. Like the bag I bought. Cost SGD 40 in Singapore and only the equivalent of SGD15 in Kyoto Shijo street, and about SGD20 in places like Ginkakuji.

Experience you can't miss

by konniemario about Kaiten zushi

Very efficient way of eating...You are seated in front of the conveyor belt with all the sushi's revolving. Just take your pick and in the end, they will count the number of plates you ate (and the type) and you get your bill. More economical way of eating, compared to going to regular restaurants. Plate costs from 120 yen to 700 yen, so better check out the prices first before you get the plates! Cool thing they did is that they just scan the plates in the end and weigh and they know how many pieces. Talk about technology, huh?! Salmon Sushi...both raw and cooked ones :-)

Leaves in October

by SHOCKZ

This has gotta be one of my top 10 spots to bring your girl, and bring your camera. If you visit Arashiyama in the autumn then you'll catch the endless colors of falling leaves and that hypnotising autumn aroma. Your girl will love it and thats a Jason in Japan guarantee! Following your hike though the forrest, your girls feet may feel a little sore as well as your own, so i recommend you max and relax in an outdoor foot onsen (hot spring). The cost is 100 yen and you don't have to take off all of your cloths. Which means you can share the relaxing moment together. Or i'm sure there are plenty of love hotels in the area if you'd prefer to relax there.

Ginkajuji Temple - Silver Pavilion

by bkoon

The weather was a bit cloudy when I was at Ginkajuji. However, the place still looked good despite the weather. The temple is not silver in colour as described in most guide books. It is a wooden dark-coloured temple dedicated ro the Kannon (Goddess of Mercy) and it has some good zen gardens. Walking up to the top of the hill (follow the marked route), you will catch a good (rather aerial) view of the temple.

Extracted from web-link:
Rinzai sect. Built as a villa in 1482 by Ashikaga Yoshimasa (8th shogun of the Muromachi period: 1331-1573) but later converted to a temple. Constructed in 1489 the pavilion (a National Treasure) is a 2-storey structure with a pyramidal roof. In contrast to its golden counterpart (Kinkakuji Temple) it was never covered in silver. Yoshimasa died before this was accomplished. Togudo (a National Treasure) in the northern part of the garden is the only structure untouched by fire. It contains a 4.5-tatami mat Tearoom that is believed to be the prototype of Japanese Tearooms. The lower garden with its impressive sand mounds is a Place of Special Scenic Beauty and a Special Historic Site. In 1994 Ginkakuji Temple was registered as part of the World Cultural Heritage.

Entrance Fee : 500 Yen
