Why don’t you enjoy the illumination at the most modern station in the old capital of Japan?
I’m Nobu, I like traveling overseas and in Japan, visited 25 countries. I’ve got the license of the certificate English guide in Japan for 8 years.
I show you hidden Japan which you have never seen and heard of!
I went to Kyoto Station.
Kyoto is the ancient capital of Japan and was the residence of the emperor from 794 until 1868.
It’s until when the capital was moved to Tokyo 1868.
Since Kyoto was not bombed during World War II, it is said to have more than 2,000 Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples with a history of more than 1,000 years.
The most modern station
Curiously, however, Kyoto Station is said to be the most modern station in Japan.
Kyoto Station was opened in 1877 when the railroad from Osaka was connected.
Today, the Shinkansen bullet train connects Kyoto to Tokyo in 2 hours and 10 minutes.
It also serves as a transportation hub to Osaka, Nara, San-in region, Nagoya, and other surrounding areas.
These are connected by conventional railways, private railways, and subways.
The current building was constructed in 1997.
It measures 470 m east to west, 70 m north to south, and 60 m high, with a huge space in the center.
It is a huge complex with department stores, specialty stores, restaurants, hotels, theaters, and other facilities.
From the central entrance, visitors can see a staircase with 171 steps leading up to the rooftop.
The staircase is illuminated at night in various ways, depending on the season.
I enjoyed the illumination during the cherry blossom season.
If you come to Kyoto, why don’t you visit not only the traditional shrines and temples, but also the most modern Kyoto Station in Japan?
You will enjoy the traditional and modern Japan at once !
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
