Day trip from Kyoto? 2007/10/16 13:02
Kyoto City
We have a JR Pass and will also have one free day i Kyoto. We have previoullsy visited the lovely towns of Himeji, Nara, Hiroshima and Osaka. Is there any other pleasant rail trip around the area...a place we could visit for a few hours?

Thank you

Lake Biwa 2007/10/16 16:49
Last year my friend and I discovered a small place in Biwako, it is very nice to walk around the typical Japanese small town with houses and farms.

Have a cup of coffee at the lakeside of BSC watersport center is very relaxing. You can canoe or sail at this beautiful place.

It is easily accessible by train, just 30mins away, the train ride is along the Biwa lakeside.

We are definity going back again this winter.

Okayama is only 75 mins from Kyoto by shinkansen, then its 15 mins to Kurashiki, bith are worth seeing, in Okayama you have Okayama Castle and Korakoen garden, in Kurashiki you have the canal area with many attractive old buildings.

How about a day trip to Kobe for sightseeing and enjoying the Arima Onsen? A stay at one of the ryokans there maybe a nice relaxing evening. Check it out.
