Could you pls let me know what are the interesting places to visit in Kyoto with JR pass ? Will be planning a day trip from Osaka



Ahoy there,

Please see our 7 day JR Itinerary and 14 day JR itinerary for our recommendations in Kyoto (and elsewhere in Japan).

I would personally visit Kyomizudera, Fushimi Inari and Nishiki Market in a single day.

Hope this helps,

Please note that the JR Pass is of limited use within the city. You can use it to go to the Fushimi Inari Shrine and Arashiyama (on the city's west side), but otherwise you'll need to pay for some subways, taxis, or buses.
