Use this




Coach-not sure you would save much over a regular train.

It's a very easy short trip. If you have a JR rail pass, or if you are OK paying the fare, get a train schedule and take shinkansen. You should probably get reserve seat tickets (free if you have a rail pass) if you do that because not all shinkansen trains stop in Himeji so you need to plan your schedule a bit.

In Kyoto station you will be able to get help from someone in the JR "Green Window" just to the left as you enter the Karasuma side of the station.
