If we talk about Kyoto, definitely we will think about old cultural cityscape.
But at Kyoto station, the gateway to Kyoto, what a modern !!!!!
The appearance outside still doesn't show the 100% of modern, let's move inside, it's modern more than this ! ! ! ! ! !
The station's large main hall with its exposed steel beamed roof, called "the Matrix", is meant to reflect both the structure of the station and the grid like layout of Kyoto's street network which makes a modernized look to this hall not less than the outside.
You can find 8 of famous Ramen shops are gathered together here such as from the North:Hokkaido, the South: Fukuoka and from all around Japan. And there is beef Ramen menu available as well, please don't miss !!!
At last, the nightview of Kyoto.
Due to a small number of towers and skyscrapers in Kyoto so, at the skyway of Kyoto station, you can overlook all of the Kyoto town which is such a wonderful view especially at night. Everyone! when you come to Kyoto station, don't miss to 120% enjoy Kyoto station like me!
