Dedicated journalist and urban explorer Colin Smith has devoted many years to exploring Japan on foot and by various forms of public transportation.

It includes chapters for Nara, Uji, Fushimi, Otsu, Ohara, Mt. Hiei, Kurama and other popular tourist areas around Kyoto.

Detailed maps are given for each district of Kyoto showing the precise locations of temples, shrines, gardens, museums, hotels, shopping districts, restaurants, parks and other landmarks. Smith gives the reader detailed information on how to take a subway, a train or a bus around the city, how to read the signs, and how to operate the Japanese ticket machines to buy a ticket. He provides route diagrams showing all the stops along each route so users know where to get on and off.

Getting Around Kyoto and Nara includes:

  • A large fold-out map of Kyoto
  • Detailed area inset maps
  • Train and subway routes
  • Bus routes and bus stops near all the sights
  • Other means of transport, like renting a bicycle and taking a taxi
