subway fare in Kyoto

anyone please tell me about the subway fare in Kyoto (such as price of only 1 stop) for me to estimate about the fare of subway and bus if we travel all day. The bus fare in central Kyoto are flat rate = 220 yen, is it correct?. If we travel by bus only one station, we could pay equal 220 yen in the same long way right ?. So should I buy the Kyoto sightseeing pass ? I think it will be in same price for many ride in one day.

Where are you planning to stay?

There are only two subway systems in Kyoto. If you want to travel between Kyoto Station and say Shijo-dori to do some shopping the City Subway fare is 270 yen.

Kyoto has a very good bus system that will get you to most of the major sites throughout Kyoto.

I just returned from Kyoto, and I do a lot of walking, many miles a day, but did notice that many of buses were filled and people were left waiting for the next bus. This was true on Sundays and the recent national holiday.
