Day 2 May 16, 2016 Itinerary:
Kurumon Market – Arashiyama Bamboo Grove – Kinkakuji Temple
Weather forecast cloudy with rainshowers.
Free entrance at Arashiyama Bamboo Forest. Woohoo!
Photobombers galore. It’s hard to get a decent photo but that’s ok. Sometimes that’s what makes it more interesting.
Tenyruji Gardens Y500 plus Y100 if you’re going inside the temple.
Arashiyama to Kinkakuji – From Saga Arashiyama station going to Emmachi Station ( 1 stop only), walk 2 minutes to bus stop. Ride bus no. 205 and go down at Kinkakuji-Michi bus stop. Y230 bus fare or use your Kansai One Pass.
Kinkakuji – Temple Of The Golden Pavilion. Entrance fee Y400.
It was raining hard by the time we left Kinkakuji. We were forced to buy umbrellas at a nearby store selling them for Y500. At the Kinkakuji-Michi bus stop, we rode bus 205 again and went down at Kyoto Station.
We had dinner at Isetann Food court then stop by BIC Camera at the corner before heading back to Osaka.
Tomorrow is another long day of walking 😉 .
