Hope one of the Kyoto experts can help me in planning my itinerary in Kyoto. I know the list is long so this may not be doable in a day. Well… basically what I want to know is the best possible (fastest) way to reach the following land marks by using the JR pass. We are travelling from shin-Osaka station.
Adashino Nenbutsu temple
Tenryu-ji temple & Arashiyama bamboo forest
I have checked the Google maps but not quite sure where to start (first visit when reach Kyoto). First I was thinking of visiting the Kiyomizu-dera temple and then to Nijo castle, Kinkaku-ji, Adashino Nenbutsu temple, Tenryu-ji temple, Arashiyama bamboo forest and then Toji temple and back to Osaka. But I’m not quite sure whether this route is the best so asking your help.
If possible, could you please let me know the trains and buses (names and route numbers) that we need to catch from one place to another? Because I’m not sure whether some trains and buses are covered by the JR pass or not.
Any help would be highly appreciated!
