After passing through immigration and exchanging currency it's now time to head for Kyoto!
Here are the easiest and most time efficient means of reaching central Kyoto city from the airport. It will also help save time and money to become familiar with the public transportation systems and to know how to use them efficiently.
There are two subway lines in the city in the north, south, east and west direction. Trains bound for Osaka, Arashiyama and Uji/Nara depart from JR Kyoto Station. Hankyu Railways and Keihan Railways also connect Kyoto and Osaka. Kintetsu Railways provides train services to Nara. Keifuku Railways runs between major tourist spots in the city by tram cars. Eizan Railways also provides convenient train service in the northern part of the city.
Most of the city area is covered with the city's bus lines but transfer and connection is complicated a little. However many tourist spots in the city can be accessible only by buses, so use both trains and buses effectively to enjoy your trip in Kyoto.
