Osaka as base for Kyoto

by stamporama

I'm interested to see the Jidai festival in Kyoto this October. I would imagine that all hotels there would be either fully booked or impose higher room rates. Therefore I was wondering if Osaka would be a cheaper and practical alternative, considering the travel time and cost between the 2 places?

Thanks for any replies.

I can't tell you which is going to be a better price. We stayed in Kyoto during the Gion Festival (which is the largest festival held in Kyoto) and found that there really wasn't a premium on the room prices or an issue with availability. We stayed a few subway stops away from the downtown area (traditional hotel - 5 minute walk from the subway station, but I can't remember the name of the place).

I would pick Kyoto over Osaka any day. Just being able to wander the streets and visit the locations in town was wonderful. There is just so much history in Kyoto.

Osaka is mainly an industrial city, although it does have its positives. But Kyoto is one of the most beautiful places anywhere. On my first visit there, (we arrived by cruise ship in Osaka. Actually, I rode the Bullet Train from Tokyo to Osaka, as I missed the ship.....long story), for some reason the image inside the giant Buddha with its Buddha statue up inside the giant head, stays with me clear as yesterday. Don't know about the hotel situation during festival, but Grumpydiver is usually spot-on and I would follow his suggestions.

My daughter just returned from Japan and she stayed in Uji about 10 kilometers from Kyoto. The ryokan she stayed in was called Aiso and it's on the river. She really enjoyed her stay there. She said it was peaceful and beautiful. The price for the ryokan was about US$86 per night. The train station is about 10-15 minutes walking distance from the ryokan. She bought a train pass (you have to buy it before going to Japan). Traveling within Japan is rather expensive so you should weigh the pros and cons of obtaining the pass. The pass cost US$300 for 1 week, US$450 for 2 weeks. It doesn't guarantee a seat on a particular train, just means you don't have to pay the regular price to travel on the train. Some trains are not available with the pass but I think most of the time it works well. Have a great trip!

Grace, I think your comment on the JR pass need a qualification. I agree, it can be a good deal, but you need to use it frequently and for reasonable distances for it to make sense.

When we were in Japan for 3 weeks, it turned out that the JR pass made sense for 2 weeks only. The travel we had planned in the 3rd week did not justify the price. The other thing to watch out for is that there many private railways in Japan. These do not accept the JR pass. In some cases (this was our experience in the Kansai area), it made more sense to buy tickets on the Nankai for our trip from Koya-san.

As with anything else, research and planning are required to find the appropriate way of doing things.

by GenkiMac

A city is beautiful at night and the atmosphere in a big lively city like Osaka is magic. Don't leave without wandering through the area of Dotomburi. The lights and people milling but not rushing to be anywhere.

by rmiya84778

Kansai Airport has an observation hall tour you can take thats intresting. Bus ride for the Observation Hall departs every 10-15 minutes from the AEROPLAZA, located in front of Kansai Airport. Bus ride costs 190 yen oneway to take. 5 minute drive from Kansai Airport to get there.Once you arrive there is an additional charge of 100 yen to enter. There are three or four floors in this observation tower. From the Observation Deck, you get a panoramic view of the airport island. There are also seats for watching take-offs and landings. I arrived early for my flight and had about four hours of waiting so I went on this tour. They also have a snack bar, vending machines and souvenirs for sale.I was also able to do last minute business discussion with my friend from Kobe here.

This is a small joint that specializes on chicken dishes. It is ideal for a few drinks accompanied by some tasty food. Very relaxed atmosphere. Deep Fried chicken wings with miso/honey flavour. Just unique and very original.

An elongated strip that is decorated with the neon sign Japans cities are so keen of. Much like a little Times Square of sorts theis street boasts many a places to get your food on or play a arcade game or two. Remember the arcade games in this country are much more advanced than what you are probably used to. One aspect I picked up on were these shady black suited characters taking up loitering on every coner, kind of haggling the crowd. They were trying to get some words with any willing female. I think I am going to grow some units upon my chest and get acosted by these home slices.

Umeda skybuilding

by tompt

Osaka is a big city with 9 million inhabitants. A big part of the city can be seen from the top of Umeda Sky Building. The Umeda Sky Building offers a 360° view at 173 meters high.

The Umeda Sky Building is open from 10:00 am to 10:30 pm(admission until 10:00pm). And the views at night are even better than at daytime. As admission fee is 700 Yen (2001 price) it is advisable to go in the late afternoon and wait until it is dark to see the nightview. You can wait at the 40th floor for the sun to set in the Sky Cafe.
