Events, festivals and matsuri in Kyoto

While festivals are common in Japan, Kyoto is the city with the highest number of matsuri (traditional festivals). Activity reaches a peak during the summer months. The Gion Matsuri is one of the city's biggest events, particularly 17 July, when there is a parade of floats through the city center. The evening is also an opportunity for Japanese people to don their finest yukata. The biggest festival of Fushimi Inari, Motomiya, also takes place around 20 July. Yoimiya takes place the day before this festival: the whole shrine is lit up with hundreds of red lanterns.

Getting around Kyoto

Kyoto city buses run from Kyoto Station around the city. The flat rate fare is 230 yen.

One-day bus passes are available on the bus or at the bus information centre at Kyoto Station and can be used for one day only on Kyoto City buses. Insert your card into the machine when you get off the bus.

There are one-day (¥1200) and two-day (¥2000) passes for all buses and subways in Kyoto, known in Japanese as Kyoto Kankoh Ichi-nichi/Ni-nichi (one day/two days) Joh-sha-ken. These passes are valid for Kyoto city buses (green), Kyoto buses (white and red), the Karasuma underground line (north-south) and the Tozai underground line (east-west).
