Travel from Kyoto to Otsu

What is the cost effective way to travel from Kyoto to Otsu?

Is it cover by Kansai Thru Pass or JR Pass?



Hi there,

Yes this is a very easy route and only takes 9 minutes / ¥ 190 with the JR.

Here is the route, it is covered by the JR-Pass!

You can also take a bus from Kyoto that my be covered by the Kansai Thru Pass in case you travel around with that.

Hope this helps,
