Access

By Bus

Traveling by bus is very convenient and easy in Kyoto! You can read about the bus system in English here. At the bottom of the page you will see a link to download a PDF of the bus route map. Unless you can print out a large copy at home, I recommend picking a map when you get here, but the PDF version is certainly handy for planning your visit. If you look on the bus map, you’ll notice that Ninna-ji is very close to two other temples, Kinkakuji and Ryoanji. All three temples can be accessed from the #59 bus, and if you’re feeling ambitious and the weather is agreeable, Ryoanji is within walking distance from Ninna-ji.

Many temples are most easily accessed by bus, so it is a very convenient method of transportation if you would like to visit several temples in one day. There are also several options for flat-fee all day bus or bus and subway passes available. You can buy these passes on the bus or at subway stations.
