Which day is cheapest to fly to Kyoto?

Monday is currently, on average, the cheapest day to fly to Kyoto. Flying on Tuesday will result in higher flight prices.

What time of day is cheapest to fly to Kyoto?

To get the best value, try booking a flight in the afternoon when visiting Kyoto. Generally the prices will increase for flights at midday as these tend to have higher demand.

How long is the flight to Kyoto?

Flights to Kyoto, Japan, vary in length, as it depends where you depart from in New Zealand and whether your flight is direct or if it requires transfers. For instance, if you were to depart from Christchurch, you could expect your journey to take approximately 18h 50m. For those that are leaving from Wellington, the total air-time is likely to be similar, at around 18h 35m. If you’re leaving from the north of the country, such as from Auckland, then your take-off to touchdown time will be around 16h.

Are there direct flights to Kyoto?

Unfortunately, you are not able to get a direct flight from New Zealand to Osaka International Airport (OSA), Kyoto. However, there are lots of indirect routes you can take that require a transfer along the way. For example, you can get Kyoto flight deals if you depart from Auckland Airport (AKL) that normally require only one stop; this transfer is most likely to be at Tokyo Narita Airport (NRT). You can also get indirect flights from both Christchurch Airport (CHC) and Wellington Airport (WLG), which require two stops to reach your destination; these layovers are frequently at Auckland and Narita Airport.

How do you get from Kyoto Airport to the city centre?

You can reach the centre of Kyoto from Osaka International Airport with ease. There is a popular limousine bus that departs from the airport regularly and takes around 55min to arrive in Kyoto. These tend to leave from Bus Stop 2, which is directly outside the terminal building. You can also get a shared taxi, but this must be reserved a minimum of three days in advance. It also might take longer, depending on how many other travellers it needs to drop off first. For those that want more flexibility with their onward journey, you can also access car hire services in the arrivals hall.

What are some things to do in Kyoto?

Kyoto is a great city with loads to do, so preparing an itinerary is a good idea. Begin your trip at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, a 16th-century building which is of cultural and religious importance. Then head over to Kinkakuji Temple, which is surrounded by a zen garden and peaceful lake. Next up, go and meet some cheeky friends at Monkey Park Iwatayama, where you can enjoy interacting with this fascinating species. Head over to Arashiyama, a bamboo forest renowned worldwide, before indulging in Samurai and Ninja Museum. Finish off your trip by visiting Eikando Zenrinji Temple and Ginkakuji Temple, both of which are located in picturesque settings in Kyoto.

Do I need a passport or visa to visit Kyoto?

Citizens of New Zealand need to ensure that they have a valid passport for travel to Japan. You don't need to arrange a visa before you travel, though, as you will be granted one on arrival in Japan. This is valid for up to 90 days, so if you plan on staying longer, you will need to arrange a visa through the Japanese consulate.
