Built in a futuristic style to commemorate the city's 1200th birthday, Kyoto Station Building serves as one of the country's main transportation hubs. Though Kyoto remains best known for its traditional architecture, this high-tech attraction designed by Hara Hiroshi stands out as a clear deviation from that style. As you walk through the station, take note of the steel-beamed roof, aptly dubbed "The Matrix." Beyond the well-known architecture, this station serves a practical purpose, providing millions of locals and tourists with not only access to major transport lines, but also shopping mall, movie theater, hotel, and numerous local government offices. Our Kyoto trip planner makes visiting Kyoto Station Building and other Kyoto attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Photographers would not be bored if visited here. There are various purposes to drop here in, big scale and sophisticated modern designing of Kyoto St. will be good to visit as any reason. Photographers will have good enough time to be fulfilled. Food and drink are too much to choose and good enough to spending time. Kyoto St. is the concentrated terminal, so the way go back home is up to you any way you want.
  • One of the most impressive building I've ever seen in my life. The architecture is a marvel of human engineering. I highly recommend going to the upper deck, you'll get a great view of the Kyoto Tower !
