I was finalising my Kyoto plans for early April and was wondering if anyone can enlighten me on how to travel to the different attractions.
I did some research online and got some useful information but i am still uncertain about how to get to some places.
Day 1: Osaka Station to Kyoto Station --- JR Special Rapid Service
Kyoto to Saga-Arashiyama --- JR line
Tenryuji to Kinkaku --- Keifuku train
Kinkaku to Nijo Castle --- Bus number 12 ???
Nijo to Gion --- Tozai --> Keihan ???
Day 2: Osaka Station to Kyoto Station --- JR Special Rapid Service
Kyoto to Fushimi Inari --- JR line to Inari
Inari to Kiyomizodera --- JR to Tofukuji ????
Kiyomizoder to Philosopher's path ---- ?????????????
Philosopher's path to Kyoto --- ?????????????
Walking, train or bus options are fine for me, but taxi is out of my budget.
I will probably start my day from Osaka at about 9am and travel around Kyoto till late evening.
Can anyone kindly help me with my transport planning. Please advice if my order of visiting the attractions is ok. Will i have time to squeeze in Nishiki market and is it worth going? (I like photography and food)
One more thing... any good places to see night time cherry blossom lighting up?
Many thanks in advance.
