You can go in less than one thousand yen by taxi from Shijo hotel. Only luggage After checking out I had been entrusted in the lobby. You can walk as well, but it is a blink If we ride the subway.
I've discovered later, there was a big lockers in the Nijo Castle. Luggage I should have brought my! (Locker enters the front door, is located in the souvenir shop's corner of the right-hand side)
There is also the fact that school trip classic, there is a huge parking lot to the main gate. The general public you also can park at \800 for two hours. Because there is bus private parking it is also come in, such as camper.
