    Eizan train is a nice experience which is run by the Eizan Electric Company in the northern Kyoto. There are two Eizan Lines that run north from Demachiyanagi Station: the Eizan Main Line and the Kurama Line. The whole journey takes about 25 minutes and runs through the upper hilly area in Kyoto and forests. It is a nice scenic journey and many tourists do this.

    The train is a fixed fee and you pay when you get off. Nice trip through the residential part of kyoto with locals rather than tourists on the train.

    The buses were easy to use and frequent. Board on the back, exit at the front. Fare is only 230 yen which you pay as you exit. If you don’t have the cash, there is a change machine by the driver. Or you can use your Suica card.

    Although there are only two subway lines in Kyoto the day pass - at 600 yen - is well worth buying and saves the hassle of searching for the ticket machines and taking fresh tickets for each trip. The subway itself is easy to navigate with each line colour-coded. Trains are clean, well maintained and it is a very quick way to get around the city. For the handicapped and wheel-chair users there are lifts everwhere

    Good means of getting around Kyoto. I usually buy a day ticket and you can hop on and off anytime any stops in Kyoto. Recommended!
