I am working on my kyoto day trips from Osaka and will like to seek advice.
There are 2 stations in Kyoto? Katsuragawa (Kyoto) and Kyoto? I wanted to go to the station where it is near to the Kyoto-eki-mae so I can take a bus. Which station will that be?
I am planning to take bus number 9,12,50 and 101 to Nijo Castle.
After which, I will take bus number 12 and 101 to Kinkakuji Temple.
From Kinakakuji Temple, I will take bus number 100 and 205 to Ginkakuji Temple.
From Ginkakuji, how do I go to Kiyomizu by bus? Do I need to transfer bus at Gion?
I am planning to spend the evening at Gion. From Kiyomizu Temple, can I take bus 80, 202, 206 and 207 to Gion?
Is the above itinerary too ambitious? Between Kinkakuji Temple and Ginkakuji Temple, which is a must-see temple? If I can only visit one?
I am planning to spend half a day in Arishimaya. I have read online that I will have to take JR line to JR Saga Arishimaya. But I cannot find the station in Hyperdia. Can someone advise me on how to get there?
I have planned half day visiting bamboo groves, tenyuji temple, togetsuyoko bridge and monkey park (in this order). Is half a day sufficient?
From Arashimaya, I want to go to Nara. For Todaiji Temple and deer park. What form of transport should I be taking? I have read that I will need to take a bus to Todaiji Temple if I am at JR Nara station. Can someone advise me what bus number will that be?
Appreciate your kind response.
