    A lot of things you can do in Kyoto Station. Can go to the top to see the view of a part of the city. Some famous matcha dessert shops have branch here so you don't need to go far to try!

    Absolutely stunning station with 11 levels of shopping, eateries, and interesting artwork. We ate our way through after arriving in Kyoto and spent a long time admiring the light stairs at night

    Beautiful station, incredible building. I suggest going to the top floor, where there is a garden and a breathtaking view of the city, and of the architecture of the station too.

    The hub with the rest of Japan, from here you can do day trips to Himenji, Nara, Osaka and Hiroshima. Be sure to buy a JR pass before entering Japan.

    For English version of map or tourism printed material, proceed to 2nd floor Tourism Centre(near to Isetan departmental store). On the 1st floor centre, you will get Japanese language only.

    Bus pass may not be needed. We bought 8, never used them and paid ¥200 per pass to get a refund. Taxis are cheap and convenient for 2 or larger parties. Use underground bag storage service, cheaper

    What an amazing station and as messy as possible at the same time! Really interresting architecture but with no maps of the entire station. Crossing the station North to South or vice versa is HELL!
