Arashiyama and Takao in Mid November

As we will arrive at Kyoto at 6am in the morning, we plan to straight away take a bus to Takao or Arashiyama to avoid traffic jam and crowd. However, does the ticket counter at Kyoto Bus terminal open at such an early hour for us to purchase the 2 day pass? From the info I gathered, the 2 day pass does cover trip to Arashiyama but not Takao. Can I still use the pass to travel to Takao by bus 8 and pay the fare difference to the driver before alighting?

On the return trip from Takao, does the bus 8 stop at Myoshinji Station in order for us to take the Randen tram to Arashiyama?

Thank you.
