Kyoto Station Building, Kyoto

(4.4/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
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. To visit Kyoto Station Building on your holiday in Kyoto, and find out what else Kyoto has to offer, use our Kyoto tour planner.
