    You can also take the train from Kyoto and walk for 10-15mins to the boat landing. It's a pleasant easy walk if not too many luggages.

    We did local tourist things (bamboo forest, temples) when staying at The Hoshinoya. It is possible to do central Kyoto from there, but we stayed at the Four Seasons "in town" and I think that would work better.
