Travel Guide - Kyoto Tower

Information

The 131 meters-tall Kyoto Tower stands at the north side of JR Kyoto Station.
The tower was built in 1964 as the center of Kyoto's industry, culture, and tourism.
The design concept of Kyoto Tower is a lighthouse that illuminates the city of Kyoto.

From the observatory at 100 meters above the ground, visitors can enjoy the beautiful view of Kyoto City's grid-like street pattern and the mountains which surrounds Kyoto Basin.
Even Osaka City can be seen from here on a clear day.

The nine-story building under the tower is called Kyoto Tower Building and serves as the foundation for the tower.
The building houses a hotel, restaurants, and various shops that sell folk crafts and local foods.
The building also houses a public bath in the basement floor.
It is open from 7 a.m.
and convenient for visitors who arrived at Kyoto in the early morning.
