I am flying into Tokyo, but I really just want to go to Kyoto immediately & not stay in Tokyo at all.
I had planned to buy a JR Pass to get from the airport to Kyoto & thought I could use the pass in Kyoto as well. Now I see that I can't. So is there something more affordable I can buy to get me from Tokyo to Kyoto (not the 7-8 hour bus ride) & then something I can buy for transportation in Kyoto?
I don't want to waste money by buying more passes than I will use or by having to buy many different passes when one or two will do.
What should I do?
