Can two ride a bike?

by konniemario

We're planning for a trip to Kyoto. Some people say that it's also recommended that you rent a bike to get around town, aside from bus or walking. Problem is I cannot ride a bike although my husband can. Can I ride at the back as a passenger? I think it's prohibited to have a passenger on a bike in some cities...not sure how it is in Kyoto?

The two-seater of a bicycle is forbidden in Japan. On the other hand you may carry out a two-seater by the motorbike. However, a duty of wear of a helmet is imposed in Japan. Enjoy touring aroud Kyoto!

Hello, I am also a foreigner here in kyoto. Anyway, I would advise you to learn if you can, before you go here in kyoto. So that when you arrive here, you can really go to many places. Besides there are small bikes here so that you can feel more safer if ever you would want one. I really suggest it since biking here in kyoto is so ... cool! :)

Travel Tips for Kyoto

How You Pray

by bkoon

How you pray is rather simple. The simplest is to put your hands together, face the god and bow your head a few times together with your hands which are together.

At Shinto Temples, after you have prayed, you may ring the bell by pullung the long rope hard and bang it on the big gong. You may choose to burn a candle or the nice smelling joss sticks.

Flea Markets

by heywinks about Toji Temple "Kobo-san" & Chionji Flea Markets

There are many flea markets in Kyoto every month but the one at Toji Temple is the largest. It is only held on the 21st of the month, every month, from 7am-5pm. You can find everything here: kimonos, pottery, toys, antiques, household goods, furniture, etc.
The flea market at Chionji Temple on the 15th of every month is more of a handicrafts market. Most of the vendors sell their own wares, ranging from bags to jewelry to pottery to homemade banana bread muffins.
Bargaining is ok at flea markets.

Curry Rice is their Specialty

by pammo about ?

Just take a look at all the choices of curry in the display outside the shop. They make their own house curry which is mildly spicey, but will serve a sweeter one to the kids or to your taste.

Help yourself to condiments on your table such as pickled garlic cloves and red pickles, etc. Depending on your taste. Try the kaki yaki (fried oyster). Yum!

Geisha watching

by Nichola1

You actually often see maiko in Kyoto as well - they are the ones training to be geisha. You can tell which is which by their clothes and their hair. But, I can`t remember how.

There is one street in Kyoto which is good for geisha watching.

After 5pm is a good time to wait for them.

NiJo Castle - a MUST-SEE in Kyoto

by PartyRambo

This was built in 1603 as the Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu's residence in Kyoto, and represents today the best of Momoyama Period (1573-1614) architecture.
It served as a symbol of power of the Tokugawa military goverment.
In 1867, the 15th Tokugawa Shogun, Yoshinobu, returned sovereignty of Japan to the Emperor, and the Castle was given to the Imperial family.
In 1939, it was given to the City and has been designated a historic relic.
Total groundspace is 275,000 sq.metres (about 2.7 million sq.feet).
This picture of the ground map is just a teaser - you'll have to read my travelogue for NiJo Castle to see the good stuff!
