How long does it take to get to Golden Pavilion from Kyoto Station by bus?
At the Kyoto Station, take the San'in Main Line and get off at the Emmachi Station. Walk for 2 minutes to the Nishinokyo Enmachi, where you can take the 205 bus to Kinugasako mae. The Golden Pavilion is about 300m from the bus stop. The whole trip takes about 25 minutes, but the San'in Main Line comes only once in about 20 minutes.
