Kyoto Station

with one comment

Kyoto station is massive! One of Japan’s largest transportation hubs, Kyoto station seems like a city all its own, with places to eat, shop, stay, you name it.  There’s also terrace at the very top of the complex where you can relax and enjoy sweeping, panoramic views of the city. When we first arrived here from Tokyo, we must have spent at least a couple hours exploring the enormous station before heading to our hotel in Kyoto Gion. I was particularly impressed by the massive, open-air canopy shown above (see an alternate shot here). I wish I had a chance to come back to the station at dusk to get some night images of the structure, but we never had the opportunity.

First order of business after a long Shinkansen ride into Kyoto station? Eat! We found a great place for Okonomiyaki there, and chowed down. Took a while to decide where to eat, since Kyoto station has literally dozens of restaurants to choose from.

  1. Hi Jonathan;
    When we were there, there was this continuous sound (beep…. beep…. beep) in the station and I also noticed it in many shops. No idea what it was for (my guess is that it is something related to earthquakes) but it was SO annoying !
    Anyway, great use of the 11-16 😉 I bought mine at the BicCamera just next to the station 🙂
