It started to get dark around 5PM and we took the bus to Nishiki Market. The nearest subway is 15 minutes walk away, while the bus stop is 5 minutes from Nishiki Market.

We thought we need to buy some kind of bus ticket on board, but the bus driver just continue driving with no vending machine visible. It took us a while to realize the Kyoto city bus charge a flat fee of 220 Yen per trip, and you pay when you got off through the front (you come in from the back). If you don't have change, just put 1000 Yen into the machine next to the driver and it shall give you small change.
