I've never been to Japan before, but in a few days I will arrive in Tokyo. Now, does anyone have any good advice for taking the train to Kyoto? What kind of ticket should I buy, how long does it take? What are the typical gaijin mistakes? :D

I know about the train card I can buy as a foreigner, but it won't be worth it for this single trip. Other than that I'll only be travelling locally.

Japan Rail Ticket not sure the price though. If you plan on doing alot of traveling in japan buy a rail pass. Best thing since sliced bread.

..hehe, me too, I took the night bus. Twice :) It sounds like a nightmare, but in a way it was actually fun, an adventure. It’s cheap at least!
