Operating Hours of Kyoto Buses & Subway

Kyoto's subway runs from around 5.30 am until 11.55 pm, 7 days a week with reduced services at the weekends and public holidays.

Tunneling was slow during the construction of the two lines to allow time for archaeological research on Kyoto's long history. Items of interest found during the construction are displayed at Karasuma Oike Station.
