Hi there,

Most buses in Kyoto are run by the local government and are not included in the JR Pass.

You can buy a daily bus ticket for 500yen. A single ride is 230yen, so its easy to make savings.

There is one local JR bus line in Kyoto. However information about it is only available in Japan.

Hope this helps,

One day bus pass are good for 24 hours? Or good till mid night of each day? If I buy at 9PM today, will it be good for till next day 9PM? Would that the one day subway pass work same as bus pass? I mean is it 24 hours pass call one day pass? (When I in HongKong, the subway one day pass work for 24 hours)

The ticket is valid for the day it is purchased on, up to midnight.
