Review of Kyoto Station Building

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/03/22 Excellent food and shopping!
This train station is super easy to navigate, info people are really helpful, English taxis are available to whisk you to your hotel and if you go inside the Isetan Department Store to your left...
Reviewed:2020/03/22 More than a train station.
Very modern and confortable station, very nice. You have shops and restaurants inside the building. Its a very photogenic building.
Reviewed:2020/03/19 Visitors will find a huge underground retail network
Not only can you explore the restaurants and retailers under the station on spacious well lit passages you can also cross many of the streets outside avoiding the traffic and the weather. Just note...

          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.
