Getting Around Kyoto

Special Note: Wedding Pro Japan provides pick up and drop off options for our customers.

When visiting Kyoto you will be surprised to find how easy it is to get around the city. There are numerous options from which to choose for getting around from one place to another: buses, subways, trains, taxis, bicycles and walking!

However on your holiday or special day when time is so precious and valuable, taking public transportation can be a time consuming nuisance. In particular, buses can be extremely crowded and will take forever getting through traffic jam packed Kyoto streets. Trains can get you close to where you want to go, but they too can be crowded, and in the end cost more than a taxi.

On the other hand, taxis might cost a little more but can help you avoid congested areas and get you directly to where you want to go quickly, and can be cost efficient if you have three or four passengers who can split the bill. Remember, you do not need to tip taxi drivers in Japan.

Nevertheless, if you are planning an event with Wedding Pro Japan: an elopement, a destination wedding, vow renewal, party, or location photo shoot, for a fee cheaper than a regular taxi, we provide several pick up and drop off options for you and your guests.

For up to four passengers you can enjoy a smooth ride in our Mercedes Benz, or for larger groups up to seven persons we can provide you with space and comfort in our Nissan Serena mini-van.


We can pick you up at your lodging and then later take you back or to a nearby location of your choosing. We are very flexible.

For larger groups we can arrange extra taxis and/or a mini bus if you want to keep all your family and guests together.

Please let us know if you will need assistance getting around Kyoto on your special day. Wedding Pro Japan is happy to support you with any or all of your elopement, destination wedding, vow renewal, or location photography needs. Check out our “Options Page” here: Options.
