questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

Nwe Year's Eve

Hi,

I'm planning to go USJ for the countdown party. However, my apartment will be at kyoto. I'm wondering if there will be all night transport for me to travel to universal city and within kyoto itself. In addition, any good recommendations of places to countdown at kyoto if I don't go to USJ?

Thank you.

Hi there,

Unfortunately there is no night transport from Osaka to Kyoto, so it would mean staying in Osaka until around 6 am when the first train services begin.

For Kyoto, just head to the center of the city for the celebrations, see:

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi again,

Unfortunately not, public transport shuts down after midnight.

Best way is to use a taxi or just walk.
