Detailed Expenses : Three Days in Kyoto

                From Osaka, I took a train going to Kyoto. The location of the hotel where I stayed at was just right across the exit of Nagahoribashi Station, so it was really convenient for me. From Nagahoribashi Station, the travel time going to Kyoto was almost two hours and the fare was 800 yen.
                I stayed in a traditional Japanese-style room at Oyado Sato which is located just a 12-minute walk from Kyoto Station. The total amount I paid for my accommodation in Kyoto was 23,400 yen for three nights.
