Kyoto's bicycle parking infrastructure is excellent.
Parts of downtown remain desert-like, only a few oases (plural of oasis?) of legal parking lots to be found.
However, the city as a whole has ample, well organized, and inexpensive parking options for cyclists.
A new addition to that are the 30+ "Eco Stations" located throughout the city.
They vary in cost and size, but in general you can park from one to three hours for free. Thereafter, you will be charged a small per hour rate.
