Comfortable access to major tourist destinations

To reach Kyoto's sightseeing spots, it is quick and comfortable to first take a train, then change to a bus if necessary, or walk to your destination. Check out the recommended routes and whether coin lockers are available to make your trip a smooth one!


■Access from Kyoto Station
Head to Enmachi Station on the JR Sagano Line. You will arrive in Kyoto in approximately 7 minutes.
Once outside Enmachi Station, cross the "Enmachi" intersection and head northwest to the Nishinokyo Enmachi [JR Enmachi Station] bus stop, and take the West Japan JR Bus.
A 60-minute ride will take you to the bus stop at Shuzan, the gateway to Keihoku. It takes about 78 minutes from Kyoto Station.

The West Japan JR Bus to Shuzan departs from Kyoto Station, but it is recommended to take the bus from JR Enmachi Station to save time and make the bus ride shorter.

■Access from Shijo Kawaramachi (Kyoto Kawaramachi Station)
Take the Hankyu Railway to Omiya Station. Go to the ground level of the station and board the West Japan JR Bus at the bus stop just after entering "Kouin-dori," which stretches northwestward from the intersection of Shijo Omiya.
It takes about 95 minutes in total to arrive at the Shuzan bus stop.
