      Please ensure you have your mobile ticket with you on the day you participate. If you fail to present your mobile ticket, you won't be able to exchange it for a bus ticket. In such a case, you'll have to pay the total amount again on-site and purchase a bus ticket separately.

      Guests of junior high school age and above will be charged adult rates. Children who are under elementary school age can ride for free. However, they will not be provided seats and meals (courses with meals). We suggest reserving a seat for older children who are challenging to hold on your lap. In this case, a child rate will be charged. Please be aware that even if your child does not reserve a seat, you may still be required to pay a separate meal fee at the restaurant for courses that include a buffet-style meal.

      If you have a mobile ticket for the Okoshi Bus (Kyoto regular sightseeing bus), you can conveniently exchange it for a physical bus ticket at the bus stop. Please ensure that you do this at least 20 minutes before the bus's scheduled departure time. You should arrive at the bus stop with plenty of time to spare. *You can’t board the bus with a mobile or paper voucher.
