schedule of operation

Hi! May I ask for the schedule of first trip and the last trip of trains? We are planning to have a day tour in kyoto as well as nara. I need to know if its possible to do it in a day.


Hi there,

You can check any train time table via

Keep in mind that trains stop service around midnight and resume service the following morning around 6 am. For instance it takes about 90 min from Kyoto to Nara, then the last train will depart around 22:30.

Hope this helps,
