The main train station is Amino Station and the main line that services Kyotango and all of its train stations is the Kyoto Tango Railway or KTR for short. All though this train line is operated by a private company and not Japan Railway certain JR passes can be used on the KTR line. Only the JR Kansai Wide Area Pass, JR Kansai Hokuriku Area Pass and JR Kansai Hiroshima Area Pass cover this railway line. The nationwide Japan Rail Pass is not vailid on the Kyoto Tango Railway.

Coming by CAR

Traveling by car is the best way to take in all of the beautiful scenery that Kyotango has to offer. With a valid driver’s license from your home country combined with a valid international driving permit it is possible to rent a car here in Japan. There are car rental agencies located in Kyoto and Osaka city. While many road signs along the main roads and highways do have English wording displayed along with the Japanese, we suggest renting a car with GPS navigation systems to help you get from point A to point B.
