Exploring Kyoto’s 15 Storey Train Station

Exploring Kyoto's 15 Storey Train Station

Kyoto, the former Imperial capital of Japan with its amazing wealth of Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines, is on many people’s ‘to do’ list when travelling in Japan.

Most arrive here via train at Kyoto Station. And, although it probably wasn’t on their list of ‘must see’ sights when in Kyoto – it really ought to be. It’s incredible!

One of Japan’s most iconic pieces of public architecture, designed by Hiroshi Hara and opened (in this current design) in 1997, it’s 15 storeys high! It’s one of the country’s largest buildings, incorporating a shopping mall, hotel, movie theater, department store, and several local government facilities.

There’s a series of escalators you can take to get to the top – and that’s what we do here. It takes 12 minutes to get there and back, so pull up a chair, grab a drink and let’s explore Kyoto’s 15 storey train station!
