★Bus stop / Departuere time/ Sightseeing spot

① Kyoto Sta./京都站

Kyoto Station was designed by the architect Hiroshi Hara based on the idea of Kyoto being a gateway to history. The building incorporates a grid-like design resembling a go board, which is characteristic of Heian-era Kyoto, and features gate-like structures at the Karasuma and Hachijo exits.
The pedestrian walkway between the Karasuma Exit and the Hachijo Exit includes an expansive sightseeing information office for easy usability for domestic and overseas travelers alike.
The Karasuma Exit’s impressive design in particular gives a feeling of the beginning of a sightseeing adventure in Kyoto. The Hachijo Exit includes numerous coin-operated lockers as well as shops offering Kyoto-specific souvenirs and dining, making it an ideal place to pass the time while waiting for a train.

② Karasuma Gojo/ 烏丸五条

The Gojo-Karasuma bus stop is located near Byodo-ji Temple. This temple was erected in dedication to a statue of Yakushi Nyorai that was recovered from the sea in 997. As the temple’s principle idol, this 9th-centry statue of Yakushi Nyorai is counted as one of Japan’s three great Nyorai statues, along with the statue of Shaka Nyorai at Saga Seiryo-ji Temple (Kyoto) and the statue of Amida Nyorai at Zenko-ji Temple (Nagano).

③ Shijo Karasuma Nishiki-ichiba Market / 四条烏丸錦市場

The area between Shijo-Karasuma and the Gion district is the busiest in all of Kyoto. This area includes the famous Nishiki Market, which has served as Kyoto’s central food market for more than 400 years. At about 390 m long, the market includes 126 shops along a road that varies between 3.3 and 5 m wide. A wide variety of Kyoto tastes—including popular chocolate croquettes, dashi broth-flavored rolled egg, and dagger-tooth pike conger—are popular treats for visitors to enjoy.

④ Nijo-jo Castle / 二条城

Located next to Nijo-jo Castle is the To-ji Shingon Buddhist temple of Shinsen-en, regarded as one of the only remaining ruins of the time of Heian-era Kyoto’s construction. This temple is home to one of the oldest gardens in Kyoto, which has been recognized as having the oldest record of cherry-blossom viewing. Within the temple grounds, visitors can also find the unique shrine of Eho-sha, which is moved on New Year’s Eve toward the eho (lucky direction) for the coming year, making it easy for visitors to pray while facing the most auspicious direction.

⑤ Nijo Sta. / JR二条站

This bus stop is located just 3 minutes on foot from JR Nijo Station. Taking the Sagano Line from JR Nijo Station to Saga-Arashiyama Station will bring visitors face to face with Torokko Saga Station. This station offers tickets not only for the sightseeing trolley cars departing along the Sagano Scenic Line but also for the Hozugawa River Boat Ride between Kameoka and Saga Arashiyama. While waiting for the train, passengers can enjoy the station’s diorama of Kyoto’s railway system as well as steam locomotives on display.

⑥ Kitano-tenmangu Shrine kamishichiken / 北野天満宮 上七軒

For those heading to Arashiyama, the Randen tram Kitano-Hakubaicho Station is located just 10 minutes on foot from the bus stop. The Randen tramway offers convenient access not only to Arashiyama but also to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Ryoan-ji Temple and Ninna-ji Temple as well as Myoshin-ji Temple (Japan’s largest Zen temple) and Toei Kyoto Studio Park.

⑦ Kinkakuji Temple (Golden pavilion) / 金閣寺

The sight of Kinkaku-ji Temple’s gleaming golden walls reflected on the surface of the nearby “Mirror Pond” makes for a brochure-worthy picture.
Rikushu-no-Matsu Pine Tree located within the temple grounds resembles a sailing ship and is over 600 years old.
The temple also features the Sekka-tei tea room at the base of the nearby mountain. The view of the temple from here is also highly recommended as the sun begins to set.
Meanwhile, just outside of the temple gate is the Kinkaku Soft Ice Cream store, where visitors can enjoy a gorgeous soft-served ice cream adorned with edible gold leaf for just 950 yen.

⑧ Daitokuji Temple / 大徳寺

The Daitoku-ji Temple precinct is home to many subtemples. One such temple is Daisen-in, known for its rock garden. Zuiho-in, another of Daitoku-ji’s subtemples, was founded by a Christian feudal lord. The moss-covered gardens of Ryogen-in Temple are also popular. Although numerous other subtemples can be found within Daitoku-ji Temple grounds, many are not open to the public.
The temple is also well-known as where the Zen master Ikkyu—who is also depicted in the popular Ikkyu-san anime—served as abbot. This eccentric monk is famous throughout Japan for his witty stories. Daitokuji natto is a unique style of natto (fermented soybeans) that is said to be the creation of Ikkyu himself.
This salty, dry take on the classic dish is noted for its lack of strings most commonly associated with natto.
To get to Imamiya-jinja Shrine from the temple, simply follow the road to the left facing the main hall. This road is notable for its stone pavement.

⑨ Kyoto Imperial Palace(Doushisya Univ.) / 京都御所(同志社大学)

Hamac de Paradis’ Kanbaikan is a public cafeteria for the private Doshisha University. This cafe restaurant is surprisingly stylish and does not resemble what most would consider a “school cafeteria.”
Located nearby is Goou-jinja Shrine, which worships Wake no Kiyomaro, believed to be the guardian god of feet. The torii gate entrance to the temple is guarded not by dogs but by boars.
Also located near the Imperial Palace is Reizeike House, the only court noble residence still existing in Japan. This residence is open only twice a year during the spring and autumn.

⑩ Heian-jingu Shrine Okazaki Park / 平安神宮 岡崎公園

Heian-jingu Shrine, the ROHM Theatre Kyoto, the Kyocera Museum of Art, the National Museum of Modern Art, and the Kyoto City Zoo are also all within walking distance of this bus stop. The impressive Toni Toni building—home of Kyoto’s Festival of the Ages—opened just in front of the bus stop in December 2017. The facility offers visitors the chance to enjoy a festive atmosphere of the Festival of the Ages—one of Kyoto’s three major festivals—throughout the year. There are souvenirs, meals and sweets unique to Kyoto.
Meanwhile, Heian-jingu Shrine’s great red torii gate straddling the road leading to the shrine is a remarkable sight, especially from underneath.

⑪ Gojozaka(Kiyomizu-dera Temple ・Gion) / 五条坂(清水寺・祇園)

Enjoy souvenirs and treats as you stroll the shop-lined streets near Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Climb the 5-story pagoda of Hokan-Ji Temple at Yasaka to the second floor -take the best photo from Yasaka Street. A water -well, known as the gateway to hell, Is a must -see at Rokudochinno-Ji Temple.
