English Busses For Kyoto Tourists

Kyoto is to provide English guidance and sightseeing information on city bus routes popular with foreign tourists. From January 19, "Raku Basu" will run on three routes, with announcements in English and bus stops written in English, Chinese and Korean as well as Japanese. Bus maps in all four languages will be published at the end of the month and multilingual information signs are scheduled to appear at all famous sightseeing spots by March. Two bus routes leave from Kyoto Station: 100, which passes Shimizudera en route to Ginkakuji; and 101, which takes in Nijo Castle on the way to Kinkakuji. Route 102 departs from the Kinrin depot and passes the Kyoto Gyoen gardens on its way to Kinkakuji. A total of ¥80 million has been spent on the plan, half provided by the central government.
