A Bargain Unlimited Ride Ticket for Travelers to Kyoto and Osaka!
Kyoto and Osaka are well-known tourist destinations in Japan. Many people who travel to these areas wind up using the Keihan Electric Railway.
The Keihan Electric Railway mainly connects Osaka and Kyoto. There are many famous tourist destinations around the stations where its trains stop.
For example, Osaka Castle, which is famous for its cherry blossoms, is positioned between Temmabashi Station and Kyobashi Station and is about 20 minutes from either on foot.
Address:1-1 Osakajo, Chuo-ku, Osaka City
To get to Fushimi Inari Taisha, which is famous for its corridor of red torii, you need only walk five minutes from Fushimiinari Station.
Address:68 Fukakusa-yabunouchicho, Fushimi-ku, Kyoto City, Kyoto
It is possible to reach Byodo-in in 10 minutes by foot from Uji Station. Hoo-do, which is located there, is depicted on Japan's 10 yen coin.
Address:116 Uji-renge, Uji City, Kyoto
It is ten minutes on foot from Tofukuji Station to Tofukuji, for which the station is named. This is one temple, but it has 25 small sub-temples known as "tatchu," making it difficult to see everything in one day.
Address:1-4 Fukakusa-honjiyamacho, Fushimi-ku, Kyoto City, Kyoto
Shimogamo shrine can be reached in 10 minutes on foot from Demachiyanagi Station, the last stop on the Keihan main line. It is one of the pieces of cultural heritage that make up the Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto, which was registered in 1994 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Address:59 Shimogamo-izumigawacho, Sakyo-ku, Kyoto City, Kyoto
When visiting these spots, rather than buying a ticket every time you change trains, it is better to buy the Keihan Electric Railway's Kyoto-Osaka Sightseeing Pass. If you use this pass, you can change trains without restriction an unlimited number of times and enjoy your trip to your heart's content. It is reasonably priced, with a one-day ticket going for 700 yen, and a two-day ticket for 1,000 yen.
The Kyoto Sightseeing Pass (500 yen for one day), which can be used only in the Kyoto area, is a another option to consider.
