Hi everyone, I will be visiting Japan in a fortnight and I am very confused. I am staying at Nara Deer Park, and I will be travelling to Kyoto for autumn leaves at Okoshi-Sanso Garden, Arashiyama Bamboo Groove and Tenryuji Temple, and generally just walking around that area. I have a choice of 2 transport means, by car, or by rail. If I take my rented car, and start from Nara at 8:00 in the morning, I will be dropping my car at Satsueisho-mae Electric Railway Station as parking space is plenty. Then I will proceed to take the train to Arashiyama.
If I take the railway, how long would it take? Is it worth it? Do I need to switch trains? Thanks in advance.
