In Osaka, you can use the JR loop line to go to Osaka Stn. and catch a 30 minute JR train ride to Kyoto Stn. From there, take bus # 100 or 206 for about 15 minutes (¥230 yen, not covered by the Pass) and get off at either Gojo-zaka or Kiyomizu-michi bus stop and walk up the hill about 10 minutes or so.
