How can I go to Kyoto from Narita airport?

I'm thinking to use train. But some guidebook says bus is more cheap. I don't know which is better... any idea?

    You could also fly, if money is no object! There are flights from Narita to Osaka's Itami airport (~12,000 - 30,000 yen) taking about 75 mins. Then take the bus to Shin-Osaka train station (15 mins/500 yen). From there it's about 30 mins on the train to Kyoto station (500-600 yen). Using the Shinkansen, it seems is the easiest way (though not the cheapest). Take the Narita Express to Shinagawa in Tokyo (~70 mins). From Shinagawa, the Tokaido Shinkansen (Nozomi type) takes about 130 mins to Kyoto station. All in, this costs about 16,000 yen. Changing to the shinkansen at Shinagawa would be a lot easier than doing so at Tokyo station, I think. There is a night bus from Narita to Kyoto. It departs from Terminals 1 & 2 at around 9:30 pm, arriving in Kyoto at around 6:30 am. A one-way ticket costs about 8,200 yen. It looks as though the bus leaves from Narita city as well, so you could do some sightseeing in Narita before getting on the bus in town. The bus is run by Nankai Bus - http://www.nankaibus.jp/express/09 You could also take the train into Tokyo (maybe Shinjuku is best) and get a bus from there. The Willer Express Japan Bus website is pretty user-friendly in English: https://willerexpress.com/en/ Personally, I would go with the shinkansen option. Not the cheapest but by far the easiest and most comfortable!

    Bus is a cheap option! You can check online for bus schedules. Most buses depart from Shinjuku Terminal. I personally always book in Willer Express and Japanbusonline.com. Or you can just go to the terminal and buy a ticket there.

Amazon hits and misses

Most of my purchases on Amazon have been household goods and groceries. Kitchen equipment, rugs, laundry and bath stuff. For food, mostly whole bean coffee, condiments, and dried or canned foods. So my question is, for kitchen, bath, and laundry, what purchases have you made that were good value for money? What grocery items do you get?

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.
