Kyoto Tower (京都タワー)

Observation Tower

A 131-meter-tall tower located in Shimogyo Ward, Kyoto City, Kyoto Prefecture. Visitors can gaze out over a 360-degree panorama of the streets of the ancient capital of Kyoto from the observation deck 100 meters above the ground. “Tawawa-chan Shrine,” the tower’s cute shrine-cum-mascot, can also be found in the observation deck. The building at the tower’s base contains a hotel, café, restaurants, and sky lounge. There’s also a day trip bath house which opens at 7 am and which is popular with travelers arriving via the night bus. (Note: Due to remodeling, the shops on the first floor are scheduled to be closed until spring 2017.)

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
