And, on the way to the stores, use public free WiFi services, if you come across the hotspots.
In Kyoto, two kinds of public free WiFi services are available.
They are “KYOTO Wi-Fi” and “Japan Free Wi-Fi KYOTO“.
Above all, “KYOTO Wi-Fi” service covers facilities and stores relatively easy to find for tourists.

Among those hotspots, Mcdonald’s and Subway stations are also easy to find for tourists.
(please note that NOT all of bus stops and vending machines are hotspots)
Moreover, such public free WiFi are provided by not only the facilities and stores as I listed above but also many private shops over the Kyoto city.
