Riding on Raku bus #102 from Ginkakuji to Kinkakuji with a bunch of yellow hats primary school students. Had fun listening to them talking to each other (yay to my kiddo standard Japanese ^^) along the not too short journey. The boy beside even apologised because his umbrella has gotten wet from the rain and still dripping. How cute.
Raku buses (#100, #101 and #102) are very convenient and useful public transport for tourists as the routes cover many major sightseeing places in Kyoto. Some useful Raku bus info.
Got off from the bus at somewhere nearby Kinkakuji but the plan was to go visit Ryoanji before Kinkakuji. Supposed to take another bus to get there but was too lazy to wait for it so I decided to walk instead. Doesn’t seem too far judging from the local map at the bus stop anyways!
Well, 30 minutes or so was all it took to reach Ryoanji and the lack of signboards kept me wondering if I am on the right track until I see
beams of lights emitted from Ryoanji. Phew. Learned my lesson and took a bus from Ryoanji back to Kinkakuji after the visiting. Lols.
