Why taking a look at the map IS helpful ^^
Today I looked up how to get the best from my hotel in Kyoto to Kuramadera. Temple close to Kyoto, Yoshitsune, Takki, bla bla...
First I used the ever helpful *hearts* hyperdia site to check out the train times etc and found out that no matter what I had to change trains at least three times to get from my hotel to the temple. The one that confused me though was that there were different Gojo stations to choose from, when I entered "Gojo" as starting point.
Of course I wanted "Gojo (Subway)" and with this option it would take about 1:15 h to get from the hotel to the temple. Long.
As "Gojo (Keihan)" had me confused a bit so I looked it up in a map
Take a look at the pic below. The red route was suggested by the train calculator (well, it's one of the options, there were different ways how to get there).
"GOJO STATION" is the one from the Subway. "GOJO" (under the red line ^^;;;) is the one from Keihan line. There is no direct connection between those two and with trains/subway it would take me about 30 min (and changing trains twice) to get from GOJO STATION to GOJO. Or I could simply WALK those... dunno... 700 m? (blue line) and save a LOT of time, money and nerves ^^;;;
From GOJO it's just another 40 minutes to the temple *gggggg*
Hell, I think I can even walk to Kiyomizu temple, even if that might take 25 min or so... Depends on the weather ^^;;;
