Sky Hop Bus Kyoto
The Sky Hop Bus runs on a route that allows you to see the essentials of Kyoto.
To visit the city in comfort
The Sky Hop Bus is a double-decker bus that travels around Kyoto, taking you along the city's most popular tourist spots and allowing you to hop on and off as many times as you like at the stops. With this fun, convenient method of transport, you can visit the must-see sights at your leisure.
A bus passes every hour along the route, allowing you to stay in one place for 1 hour (or even 2 hours) and then take the bus to the next place.
Organise your day by choosing the places you want to visit, at the pace of the buses.
Explanations in your own language
You can also, if you prefer, stay on the bus, admiring the view through the large windows and taking in the explanations. In fact, on the bus, you will be given an audio guide in 7 languages which, thanks to its built-in GPS, will provide you with explanations in your own language about the attractions you will pass by.
