shinkansen non-reserved seat ticket you can get 24 hr in advance, reserved ticket is available only from 30 days before departure.
Is this new? I remember in 2015, i bought 2 days in advance. Wanted to buy reserved but they didn't have seats together for my preferred timing.

Gion and nishiki market do together with kyomizu if you got the legs for it

Kinkakuji with philosopher's walk

Arashiyama on it own
Fushimi inari is on the south. Alone too

Even if I can remember rough location of places in kyoto, you also cannot so lazy just say I wanna see xyz and hope ppl spend their time give you route.

It is your holiday after all

Thanks, but will skip the theme park, as we are going with a tollder.. will be visiting thomas the train park though, so likely not taking this package.

So to get the bus ticket, i have to buy on the spot?

depends on your tolerance for cold imo
I would suggest layering up enough, you can still remove coat indoors, gloves and beanie go a long way keeping you warm

you got check if the dates you want are still available? I am not sure why the site will break

unless they do not sell overseas which is strange

xmas is not a holiday in japan, so shops/restaurants are all opened.
