Moving in Kyoto (to Holiday-Inn Kyoto and Kyodai-Kaikan)

It is convenient to access most places in Kyoto-City by using the City-Bus or taxi. From Kyoto Station to the hotel (Holiday-Inn Kyoto), it takes about 30 minutes by City-Bus or taxi.

If you choose to go by taxi, it costs about 2000 yen from the station to the hotel. (We suggest that you take the taxi.) We have made "destination cards" to Holiday-Inn Kyoto and Kyodai-Kaikan. You may print out these cards and use them indicate to the taxi driver the place you want to go.

If you choose to go by City-Bus, bus number 206 brings you to near the hotel. You will get on the bus at A-2 bus stop, at the bus terminal on the north side of Kyoto station. And you get off the bus at "Takano bashi higashi dume (East end of the Takano bridge)". From there, it is only a few minutes' walk along the east side of Kamo river to the hotel. The bus fare is 220 yen. When you go to Kyodai-Kaikan, the same bus (opposite direction) will take you the to nearest bus stop "Kyodai-seimon-mae (Main gate of Kyoto Univ.)"(old name "Higashi-ichijo") and it is a 10-minute walk to the Kyodai-Kaikan from there.
