1. Re: arashiyama to nijo castle or imperial palace

Fastest way to get to Nijo Castle is by JR train from Saga Arashiyama station to Nijo station and walk. To get to Imperial Palace, do the same up to Nijo Station then take Metro Tozai Line to Karasuma Oike. Change there for the Metro Karasuma Line to Imadegawa and walk.

You can also take the Randen tram from Randen Arashiyama to Randen Tenjingawa, and take Metro Tozai line train to get to Nijojomae and/or Karasuma-Oike.
