Tokyo to Kyoto (maybe Hiroshima)

by Jasmijn13

Hi!

I'm going to be flying into Narita in February but staying in Kyoto that night, and then doing all that in reverse a week later. Can I take the Shinkansen? How do I get to it from the airport? Should I get a rail pass?

Thanks :)

RE: Tokyo to Kyoto (maybe Hiroshima)

by shi612

Shinkansen is the best and a rail pass is not a good deal if you have no plan to go elsewhere.
The best way to go to Kyoto from Narita Airport is as follows:
From Narita Airport to Tokyo by Narita Express (NEX) for 83 minutes
From Tokyo to Kyoto by Nozomi of Tokaido Shinkansen for 142 minutes.
It costs 16,230 yen (32,460 yen for a round trip)
Japan Rail Pass for 14 days costs 45,100 yen, which does not cover Nozomi.
See this site for other options:

A 7 day Japan Rail Pass costs 28,300 yen. You can use it to travel on NEX from the airport to Tokyo Station. The Nozomi train is a little bit faster, will arrive about 20-30 minutes quicker (and the rail pass is not good on Nozomi trains) but I don't find the 30 minutes is worth the extra cost compared to a rail pass. But that is just my opinion and experience.

Here is a good place to find the schedule, cost and length of each trip:

If you are staying in Kyoto, then your side trip to Hiroshima is also covered with the rail pass. You must order your rail pass voucher before arriving in Japan (through a travel agent). When you arrive at Narita airport, find the JR ticket office and exchange your voucher for the rail pass, and ask the agent to make reservations for you on the NEX and the connecting train to Kyoto. It's all very easy and the ticket agents are very helpful.

Travel Tips for Kyoto

Cute Little Japanese Masks

by SLLiew

I have been told by some that Japanese in public may not show their true feelings so as not to damage relationships or rock the boat. Guess it is a matter of degree. But what better than to wear a mask.

In Japan, found that there many colorful mask from Japanese animation favorites that are world famous like Doraemon, Ultraman. They are relatively inexpensive and light to carry and so great souvenir for kids.

Rock Statues in Sanzen-in Gardens

by naruto

I was utterly fascinated by these little rock statues and faces nestled within the moss of the Sanzen-in gardens. They look like little gnomes, but could very well have a more spiritual significance.

You can see more of these statues in My Rock Statues in Sanzen-in Gardens Page

Amanohashidate - Bridge to Heaven

by blacksnail

Amanohashidate means “Bridge of Heaven”. I love this place as there were less tourists and the scenery is great!

There is this land about 3km divided the water, one side is the lake and the other side is the sea. Its about 3 hrs ride from Kyoto to this place, and JR pass cover up to Fukiyama only. Then you have to pay about 1600yen to continue the train ride to Amanohashidate.

When you got there, you can either pay 520Yen for a Ferry ride to get to the other side, or you can walk the 3km land. Its quite a fun walk, there are beaches and small small temples, wells and etc along the walk. When you got there, you can either walk up or take a rope way which cost 320 yen. The walk is about 10 mins, and rope way is about 4 mins.

you will see people standing with legs open wide and bend down to see the Amanohashidate between their legs. Is really funny to see that, but the view is splendid. The sky becomes the sea, and the sea become the sky and there is a bridge across the sky!

Daigoji Temple

by Rabbityama

Although Daigoji Temple is one of Kyoto's World Heritage Sites, it is less often visited by foreign tourists, but in my opinion, it's one of Kyoto's best temple complexes!

Upon entering, the first building on left is the Sanboin, the garden complex. The original Sanboin temple was built in 1115 however, the buildings and garden you see today were rebuilt in 1598, so they still hold a lot of history. Unfortunately, you cannot take pictures anywhere inside the Sanboin complex. The garden inside is absolutely gorgeous, especially in the fall.

If you travel straight along the road, you will reach the main temple complex, where the Kondo is located. The Kondo and Sadaimon gate were rebuilt by Toyotomi Hideyori in 1600 and 1605 respectively. The temple guardians on each side of the gate date back to the Heian Period (1134). The oldest structure in the complex is the five-storied pagoda, completed in 951. Because so many of the buildings are truly historical, Daigoji is well worth a visit, and the complex is large enough, you can easily spend two hours or more viewing all of the sights. Despite its fame, foreign tourists do not travel here as often, so it's less crowded, which makes the trip even more enjoyable!

If you are worried that Daigoji is too far out of the way, I recommend combining it with a trip to Uji or Fushimi Inari Shrine!

Each area has separate admission costs. You can either pay 600 yen to see one, 1000 yen for two, or 1500 yen to see all three areas. The Reihokan is a museum, so if you just want to see the actual temple, I recommend paying 1000 yen to see the main complex and Sanboin. If you just want to see the main part, travel straight down the entrance road and just pay 600 yen.
