Buses are the best way to get around Kyoto. The subway system is not as good as other cities and this super cheap pass is a great way to go all over the city. This pass provides unlimited travel on the city buses for one day.
What does it cost?
A one day pass is 500 yen for Adults and 250 yen for Children.
When can I use it?
Is it worth it?
Almost always worth it, as it’s cumbersome to pay without a card and you will start saving money after just a few bus rides. Maybe not worth it if you are spending all day in one place.
What are the rules?
- You can only use the bus within the set area of Kyoto. This is shown on your ticket.
- Some places, such as Arashiyama Bamboo Groves are outside this area, but its just a small surcharge or short train journey. Or you can just walk it!
Where can I buy it?
How do I use it?
Just show it to the bus driver when you get on and off a bus.
