Because we are based in Kyoto, all moves we carry out in Osaka/Kobe and other areas are surcharged (require extra money) for extra time, fuel and road tolls necessary and are therefore priced on time taken from our leaving Kyoto city limits until returning to the same point (Kyoto Minami interchange).
