Public buses are well posted by sign, frequent and reliable, and due to the number of tourists using the major bus routes, you often get announcements in English. All buses depart from clearly marked platforms at the Karasuma exit in Kyoto Station. Bus 100 runs every 10 minutes and plies a route that goes past or near many of the city’s major attractions in east Kyoto including Kiyomizu Temple, Gion, Nanzenji and Ginkakuji. For an inner city trip expect to pay 220 Yen (or 500 Yen for an all-day-pass). You can pick up a map of major bus routes at the Bus and Subway Info counter or the Kyoto Tourist Information Office.
