Let’s Go To Kyoto, Japan!

Let’s Go To Kyoto, Japan!

Sep 6, 2014

In all of Japan, I have to agree that Kyoto is one of the most gorgeous places in the country. What else do you need when in Kyoto you will get great selection food, endless shopping opportunity, countles temples, statues and Zen gardens to visit? I totally enjoyed walking through the bamboo forest, popping into one temple after another and witnessing the wide array of Kyoto’s beautiful Zen gardens. Cost of Accommodation A night in a hostel dorm room in Kyoto had cost me USD25. Most of these hotels are just within a 10-minute walk from the Kyoto station and they offer free Wi-Fi, private terraces and a kitchen for travelers to cook their own food. As for the budget hotels, you can expect to pay about USD60 per night, complete with normal amenities and free Wi-Fi. I would suggest for you to shop around before finally settling in one of the hostels or hotels. (image by: University of Nottingham) Cost of Food The first few days I was there, I was attempted to eat everything in Kyoto. I was not quite careful, I knew I would be spending most of money on eating out there. Fortunately, there are a lot of cheap food around apart from those expensive restaurants. I would recommend trying out sushi belt restaurnts, tempura and cheap ramen for less than USD7. For a plate of curry bowl, the cheapest is at USD2.75. Other than that, a bowl of rice and meat called Donburi had cost me about USD4-USD4.50. If you wish to cook your own food, the cost of groceries can be around USD70 per week. As for sit-down restaurants, the cost will be between USD10-USD20 including table service. Cost of Transportation Bus is probably one of the easiest ways to get around Kyoto city. For a single ride on a bus, I paid USD2.50 and USD5 for an all-day pass. Other than that, Tozai and Karasuma lines, two main trains in Kyoto, have their fares begin at about USD2. From a place to another, the range is pretty accessible and if you can walk on foot, do so to save your budget on transportation. Places To Visit One...
