You can fly di­rect to Ky­oto from Aus­tralia, land­ing at nearby Osaka Kan­sai In­ter­na­tional air­port, or catch the train to the city, with many lines con­nect­ing Ky­oto to other cities in­clud­ing Tokyo. Con­sider a Ja­pan Rail Pass if you plan to do a lot of train travel around Ja­pan. Bi­cy­cle is your ideal form of trans­por t, with those easy to ride streets. If that’s not your style, pub­lic trans­por t is your best bet with a com­pre­hen­sive trans­port sys­tem in­clud­ing buses, sub­ways and trains. At the time of print­ing, AU$1 is worth around ¥80. Credit cards are ac­cepted in most ho­tels and de­part­ments stores but only some restau­rants will take them.
