Hi there!

Use the map to plan your Japan trip itinerary for one day in Kyoto, 2 days in Kyoto, or 5 days in Kyoto, or even a cherry blossom photo walk in the spring!

Be sure to play around with the map!

 

But first…

Quick tips for getting around Kyoto

  • When you’re actually in Kyoto and in the major tourist areas, you’ll see local sightseeing maps all over!
  • 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 one day bus pass will be worth it if you’ll be taking the bus at least 3 times – see more tips for taking the bus in Kyoto
  • 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.)
  • If you’re traveling with a JR pass, there’s a JR bus in Kyoto and a JR train in Kyoto. The routes are limited, but there ARE some top spots in Kyoto you can get to for FREE!
