Bus Travel

Buses in Kyoto are quick, reliable, and punctual. Bus 100 and Bus 101 connect all the major sightseeing spots. Pick up route maps at the Kyoto Tourist Information Center.

Within the city the fare is ¥230, which you pay when getting off the bus; outside the city limits the fare varies according to distance. Several special transportation passes are available, including a one-day city bus pass for ¥500, valid for use inside the inner-city area; one-day (¥1,200) or two-day (¥2,000) passes that cover travel on city buses, the subway, and private Kyoto Line buses; and the torafika kyo pass, which provides ¥3,300 worth of transport via city bus or subway for ¥3,000. Passes are sold at travel agencies, bus terminals, and information centers in Kyoto Station. Trips to Uji, Ohara, and other outlying areas are not included in the one-day all-you-can-ride pass.
