Osaka or Kyoto?

by hojoon0724

I'm planning my trip to the Kansai area around june 6th to 10th and I need to decide where I should stay
First, how long does it take to go from Osaka to Kyoto? and how long does it take?
Second, which city should I base on? If it's not a big distance to cover, I'd like to stay in one city than staying two different places.

Thanks in advance

As above said, it's about 30min bullet train ride, and the day trip from one city to the other is doable, but if you'd really want to enjoy these cities, stay at both places (2 nights each or 3 nights at one place and 1 night at the other). The night life in these cities is a half of the fun, and you don't want to worry about missing the last train back to the hotel.

LOL.. I meant how much does it cost by train. I think I got distracted when writing my post

Hi I am sorry I don't know the cost of the train but I must say that staying at one place would be good enouf to explore both cities! Stay at Kyoto. There is more to do. Unless you are a shopper, a night clubber or a universal studio fan, there is no need to use Osaka as a base to explore Osaka. I just took the sShinkan

Travel Tips for Kyoto

Historical Sights.

by Sharrie

Visit Kyoto's historical sights: its many temples and castle are exquisitely and uniquely erected.

A must city for anyone hoping to know Japan. Originating from here gives one a sense of history with regard to the once powerful imperial ruler and one of the world's richest country.
Kyoto was once capital of Japan (794-1868 AD) and this compact city is a great place to begin to understand the wonders of this country. One of the most beautiful historical city in the world, especially during the cherry blossoms season!

Geisha glimpse

by bonmse

The big street that runs east/west over the river leads to the little alley where the Geisha establishments are....get there before dusk and you may catch a glimpse of Geishas on their way to their evening rendezvous!

How to get Kyoto.

by worldkiwi

Kyoto does not have an airport. The nearest international airport is Kansai (KIX), which is south of Osaka. The Haruka express (train) links Kansai International with Kyoto JR station. The journey takes about 80 minutes and cost JPY3490 in 2006. This was for a reserved seat. If you are coming from elsewhere in Japan, shinkansen (bullet trains) stop at Kyoto JR station on the way between Tokyo and Hakata (Fukuoka).

Dinner at the Kamo River. ...

by asantetravel

Dinner at the Kamo River. This used to be the place to be, after dinner the older generations would have a bath then heard out to the river to relax. Now, many young musicians, young couples, and families hang out here. One afternoon, I stopped at Starbucks and picked up a carrot sandwich and carmel frapp. then headed to the river. I had a great dinner with the breeze, a guitarist behind me, and the sounds of children laughing as they crossed the river on stones. If you have enough time – try one of the restaurants there too!

Kyoto Imperial Palace

by Blatherwick

Although not as impressive as other sites in Kyoto, the Imperial Palace makes for a nice little tour. It is still used for some state functions such as the crowning of a new Emporer. You must apply for permission to tour the actual palace through the Imperial Household Agency which is located right across from the palace itself. People under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
