We woke up around 5am to prepare for departure to our next destination, Kyoto. The bus leaves at 7am daily and we didn't want to miss it as the next one is around 2pm+.
We slept along the way as everyone was extremely tired after the past few days of non stop walking. At about 11.30am, we reached Kyoto Station. The first thing we did was to buy the Kyoto City Bus and Kyoto Bus One-Day Pass from the ticketing counter in Kyoto Station.
From the station, we had wanted to take the bus to K's House Backpackers. But due to long queue at the bus stop, we decided to walk there instead. It was about 15 mins. We could not check in till 3pm, so we left our luggages there and headed to Kiyomizu-dera.
We took bus number 206 and alighted at Kiyomizu-michi bus stop. It was a busy street leading to the temple with many buses and tourists. We walked for about 15 to 20 minutes.
After visiting the temple, we walked down through Sannen-Zaka and Ninen-Zaka, very attractive lanes full of shops selling snacks, souvenirs, and crafts. All the buildings are mad of wood. Pretty amazing, regardless of the huge number of tourists, there is not a single rubbish on the roads.
