It's one of the most famous sights in Kyoto, so it's the place you want to go to as soon as you get to Kyoto Station!
Which route should I access?
Let's review which route we should access from Kyoto Station to Kinkakuji!
The main trains in Kyoto are the
①JR Main Line, ②JR Sagano Line, ③Subway Karasuma Line, ④Subway Tozai Line, ⑤Hankyu Kyoto Line and ⑥Keihan Main Line. (Other than this there are Keifuku Kitano Line, Keifuku Arashiyama Main Line, Eizan Electric Railway Main Line)
If you look at the map carefully ...
There is no train route in Kinkakuji area!
That's right. Unfortunately, the Kinkakuji area does not have a train and there is no nearest station.
The access method to Kinkakuji is as follows.
Take the subway Karasuma Line and get off at section 7 "Kitaôzi", and then there is a city bus for about 15 minutes
Transfer is troublesome
& take time
Take the JR sagano Line and get off at the 3rd section "Enmachi", then there is a city bus for about 10 minutes
Transfer is troublesome
& take time
About 50 minutes by city bus (101 lines) from Kyoto Station
It takes time because it stops at every bus stop
& The bus is relatively crowded
