    One-day bus tickets allow you to travel around the city easily. You can get them at several City Bus and Subway Information Centers around the city or even on the bus. However, during peak seasons (cherry blossom and autumn foliage seasons), city buses can get incredibly crowded.

    Visit Amanohashidate, one of Japan's three most scenic views

    Amanohashidate is a natural land bridge covered by nearly 8,000 pine trees that spans the mouth of Miyazu Bay. It’s located in the northern part of Kyoto Prefecture and takes about two hours by bus or train from Kyoto Station. Here, you can explore the peaceful and divine sandbar on foot or by bike. Then admire the entire view of Amanohashidate at the observatory through the "matanozoki" position, which involves turning your back to the bay, bending forward, and looking between your legs.
