Quick tips for getting around Arashiyama
- When you’re actually in Arashiyama, you’ll see local sightseeing maps and signs pointing in the direction of tourist attractions all over as this is a major tourist area in Kyoto
- The Google Maps app is also a reliable way to figure out how to get around Kyoto by bus and train
- The Japan Travel Navitime app can be good if you’re trying to figure out the best way to get around with a JR pass (or to help you decide if it’s better to get around without your JR pass)
- The Google Translate app has a feature where you can take a picture of Japanese writing and it will translate it for you
- The ICOCA card is SO worth it to get if you’ll be taking the bus or train to get around Kyoto. (No cost savings, but it’s highly convenient so you won’t have to go through the hassle of buying individual tickets! They are basically recharge cards.)
