Navigating the transportation system

by mommapat

I am flying out of Itami airport and need to get from my lodging to the airporti n time for an early morning flite. Do you recomend the share taxi (MKgroup)? Is the MK group reliable? There are so many disclaimers on their website that it has me wondering! Also, I need to get from Kyoto station to my lodging with luggage. I assume the taxi would be easier than hauling baggage for 2 people on the bus?

Re: Navigating the transportation system

MK is quite reliable. MK offers a shuttle service to and from Kyoto and Itami Airport here is the information:

http://www.mk-group.co.jp/english/shuttle/top.htm

I suppose the fact that they stop at each passenger's hotel there may be alot of waiting involved but the price is very reasonable.

If you chose not to use the shuttle service you would have to travel from your hotel to Kyoto Station then ride the Shinkansen to Shinosaka. From Shinosaka you would then ride the airport bus to Itami Airport. The Rail Pass would take care of most of the expense but it will be much more work for you than simply riding the shuttle.

For route information use this site:

Use Kyoto and Osaka Airport as your starting/destination points.

Re: Re: Navigating the transportation system

Thank you for your quick response to both my transportation questions. Everything I saw on the internet just gave me info for the new airport (KIX). As you can tell, I am someone who needs to have a plan in place "just in case." Probably the hotel and ryokan we are using would give me information but "just in case" we hit the one clerk who does NOT speak English I wanted to be prepared. Seattle is a large city but nothing like Tokyo for sheer numbers of people and activity.

Travel Tips for Kyoto

In Gion at a Geisha bar....

by j-san

In Gion at a Geisha bar. Again, this was only possible via an introduction. The Geisha were more sophisticated than the Maiko. They focused on the male members of our party. I asked a friend who often attends functions where Geisha are invited to entertain and she told me this was perfectly normal. Women don't go to Gion bars. The Geisha in this picture was taking part in the Gion Odori (yearly Geisha dance) the next day, yet here she was up in the early hours of the morning the night before!

Bar Isn't It?

by j-san about Bar Isn't It?

I hate this place.

But, MANY foreigners (age group 21-31)love it. This is a point of contention between me and my friends. I find it sleazy, smoky and the staff really unfriendly.

Still, you can meet people for sure after a few drinks. It is essentially a pick-up bar. eeeuuggh :/ None. Just the usual casual stuff like jeans, mini skirts etc.

Japanese Style Cuisine

by pammo about ? (3 circles in a tower formation symbol)

Look at the displays outside to see if you can find one you would like. It was all quite tasty and the service was polite and attentive. The tempura is served in courses while each item is fried so that it is hot and fresh. Try one of the special set menus. Some come with 'beer service' (includes beer). The deep fried ice cream was intriguing.

KYOTO: Golden Pavilion

by dewaele.j

Actual name of the temple is Kinkaku-ji. The golden pavilion in the centre of the park is unique, not only because it is covered in a thick layer of gold leaf, but also because it is built in 3 different architectural styles. This 'house' was built somewhere around 1220. The whole temple complex is situated in a very beautifull park.

Meditate in Zen Garden

by traveldream

There are 15 stones in the Zen garden inside Ryoan-ji. But most people only see 14 of them. Where is the 15th? Only the enlightened one can see...

I was kidding. Well, not entirely. There are 15 stones, but most people see only 14. If you find the right position to sit or stand, you can see all the stones.

I was there on a rainy day in autumn, pretty exhausted. It was calming to sit there although I didn't really understand the garden... ;)
