Advise on Fire Festival (kyoto/kurama) on 22 Oct 2005.

by ahyuen

We will be traveling to kyoto this month and we are planing to visit kyoto and the fire festival 22 Oct 2005.
I have been told getting there using train is a night mare. Any advice on how to get there from kyoto ? Is taxi expensive ?

Thank you very much.

Taxi in Kyoto around 470 yen to 650 yen or more when you get on the taxi. Different taxi company with different price.

Welcome to Kyoto :-)

Kurama Fire Festival is very famous and popular... so there will be a lot lot lot of people!
But, in my opinion, using train is the best way.
Of course, the train will be crowded and maybe you have to wait in the queue.
But the train company will run more trains on the festival day.

About taking taxi, it can be very expensive.
Kurama area is a countryside of Kyoto.
If I remember correctly it will take more than 30 minutes by taxi,
and it may cost more than 3000yen.
The roads are very narrow near Kurama area.
So, I think, trains are better.

Hope this helps :-)
Have fun in Kyoto!

Dear Ayurin,
Thank you very much. thank you for clearing my doubts.
Do you think going kurama at 4pm from kyoto too early ? I understand that I have to change a few trains to get there from kyoto station. Do you happen to know how to get there from kyoto.

Thank you for your time. Appretiate your kind help.

Have a nice day.!

Hi, I'm also trying to make it to this festival this weekend. Can't find a hotel in Kyoto that night. Any advice? Is there camping allowed near this festival? I read somewhere online that it may go all night?

The train is the only way to go. There is a narrow road, which will be massively crowded. This is a mountain village. A taxi may be ¥8,000 and there may be no taxi to take you back. You should get on Eizan train from Demachiyanagi (connects with Keihan). From Kyoto Station you can take subway north, switch to Tozai subway east to Sanjo Keihan, then get on Keihan to Demachiyanagi and transfer to Eizan. You should aim to get to Demachiyanagi by 4-4:30. The train will be crowded, the train back will be crowded beyond human belief. You may have to wait 2 hours to get on the train to come home. Everyone will stink of smoke, but it will be one of the most amazing things you will experience in your life. It is worth it. More info and pictures on my website at planetkyoto.com/nils/.

Travel Tips for Kyoto

Celebrating sakura in Maruyamakoen.

by worldkiwi

Maruyama Park, at the eastern end of Shijo-dori, behind the Yasaka Shrine, becomes a busy and festive place in spring. The many cherry trees there are a riot of blossom and centre-stage stands a giant and ancient weeping cherry tree, raised on a small hillock and fenced-off to protect its roots. The pathways are lined with food stalls and hanami picnickers with their ubiquitous blue tarpolans spread on the ground revel. It's a great place to see Japanese customs associated with this beautiful and heady time of year happen in front of your eyes.


by heywinks about YELLOW CAMERA

This film developing shop is conveniently located on Kawaramachi Street. It`s a yellow colored store (hence the name!) & easy to spot next to the Lipton Tea Room.
Developing film is expensive in Japan. You pay a developing fee PLUS a fee per photo developed.
At Yellow Camera, the developing fee is 598 yen. I usually get 4X6 inch photos developed and the fee per photo here is 12 yen (compared to 35-40 yen at other shops). If you can wait a day and pick it up the next day, you can get a discount and pay only 9 yen per photo. An index print is 130 yen.
The quality is good & I`ve had no problems at this shop.

Stylish, delicious and English menus

by traveltrish about The Four Seasons

Eating in Japan can be daunting at times as many places have only Japanese writing on the outside. Difficult to know if you will be able find something you like and then communicate it. For a more expensive dinner we found the very foreigner friendly restaurant called the Four Seasons Restaurant which is on the Sanjoyou Dori not far from the Pig and Whistle and the subway. Meals whilst not for the budget traveller were not too expensive either. The restaurant is extremely stylish and modern with sunken tables. The food was delicious. We had an English menu and an English speaking Chinese waitress who was delightful. On checking out the website of this restaurant I found other restaurants and bars that must also be run by the same people that would be worth checking out. We had a squid salad, (can't remember the name) that was delicious. All of the food was "Gochiso-sama deshta".
Really is worth saying this if you enjoyed the meal, we found the Japanese were thrilled when I said this.

Kinkakuji Temple

by K1W1

This temple is a UNESCO site and a must for the tourist in Kyoto. The highlight is obviously the temple itself as the gardens, although very nice, are not in the same league as Kodaiji Temple or others in the Eastern side of the ciry.
It gets busy here and tripods are not allowed, so be prepared.

Entrance: Yen 500


by kooka3

Kinkaku-ji is one of the most famous temples in the area and probably one of the most photographed as well. There is quite a bit of history to it, so if you don't have a good guide book that gives the history, consider joining a tour or something.

It was originally built in the 1300s but was burnt down by a monk in the mid-1900s and obviously rebuild since then! It has been used by shoguns, monks, and various other groups.

The building is archetecturally interesting for the various styles combined into 1 building. The outside has something close to 50 kilos of gold covering it.

It's surrounded by a beautiful park (but what park ISN'T beautiful in Japan??) and has the potential to be very serene - when the all of us tourists aren't there!

THe entrance fee is about 400 yen. It's well worth it, even though you can't go inside the Golden Pavilion.
