Can't say enough great things about this amazing station. It's clean, organized, and safe! Great signage for whichever direction you want to go whether taking the train, shopping, or trying one of the eateries in the upper levels. On the way up to the 13th or 14th levels, enjoy the light show on the steps next to the escalators. You can see the Kyoto tower is colorful and beautiful when lit up at night. You just have to be there to appreciate what this station has to offer. All under an open air roof. Awesome!

For a start, wouldn’t it be nice if all stations in major cities were like this; clean, well organised, safe, with good hotels, restaurants and shops! And if you’re into modern architecture and/or photography or both you’ll need an hour to explore the different areas, views and angles in the morning and the late afternoon. Wonderful

JR Kyoto Station in the center of Kyoto.

The station building is a colonnade of a large roof.
We do not have to worry about rain.

Our hotel was above the station and the views to the roof or inside looking up was spectacular. The design is ultra modern and fits very well in the environment surrounding it. Easy to use and people asked to show us the way many times when we were confused.

I’m not a train geek but Kyoto station is awesome to walk around as it is an amazing building. You can take the dozen or so escalates up to the top of the roof of the building and then walk across to the other side over the atrium.

You can also access the outside area through the department store attached to the building.

It is easy to miss seeing the actual architecture of the station building if you only spend time catching the subway or the Shinkansen.
