Kyoto, Kanazawa Sightseeing by Taxi

Jump to last reply

To save time, we plan to tour the major sights in these cities by taxi. Do the drivers generally know the names of the major sights or do I need to have their names written down in Japanese? We are staying at the Hyatt in Kyoto so I would expect that they would know where that is located. Am I correct in assuming this?

In Kanazawa, we are staying in a relatively unknown machiya, so for that I will make sure we will have the address written out in Japanese.
