How and when do u pay for kyoto buses?
Which r the recommended bus service for tourist??
buses in kyoto, like most buses in japan, has the entrance at the back(or sometimes middle) of the bus and you alight from the front. if you have a icoca or suica, you tap it when you enter and then you tap out at a sensor near the driver when you exit from the front. if you are paying in cash, you need to pick up a small paper chit near the entrance and then pay the appropriate amount as indicated on an electronic sign in front of the bus when you alight. you drop your coins and the paper chit into the payment box near to the driver. there is also a coin changing machine by the side of the payment box usually.

One can also buy the day pass @ nt500 for adults and nt250 for children. Can take unlimited bus rides within the day. Each ride is nt230, so if one takes 3 or more rides, it will be more worthwhile to buy the day pass. day pass can be bought on the bus itself if i am not wrong.

Any suggestion? Flight is ex during this period this need to consider before buying.
