Take the Randen tram at Arashiyama Terminal, and change at Katabiranotsuji Station to Kitano-Line. Get off at Omuro-Ninnaji Station and walk up to Ninnaji Temple. Take the 59 bus north at Omuro-Ninnaji and get off at Kinkakuji-mae. It takes about 40 minutes in total, and is the most scenic way to get from Arashiyama to Kinkakuji. On the way to Kinkakuji, you can also stop by two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Ryoanji and Ninnaji for a short visit.
