“Best view of Kyoto”
Review of Kyoto Tower

Kyoto Tower
Ranked #57 of 1,135 things to do in Kyoto
Reviewed March 17, 2013

There isn't too much I can say about Kyoto Tower that isn't too obvious. It is the highest and probably the best view you can get of the city. If you have been to other observation decks in Japan it is pretty much the same deal here. You need to pay at the ground floor, which is in the middle of a shopping center. You can then take the lift up, where you are greeted by staff who offer to take your photo, standing next to what i think is a picture of the cities mascot? The observation deck is indoors, so taking photos can be tricky when its busy and the quality isn't the best as your shooting through glass. Although it is nice to get a 360 degree view of Kyoto. Worth the visit.

If you want to see Kyoto city from high top of building. I guess Kyoto Tower is the most high place to see this city with beautiful
scenery.

Dont miss a visit in the tower with a great view over most of Kyoto. Especially the facade at the Central Station are worth a view with it´s windows changing angles and the mirror effect. Stunning!

I didnt went up to the observation floor. There is a shopping center at the ground. It just located in front of Kyoto Station. During night, you can see the tower in white and orange color. Night view is better.

When we found this place, the intention was to go up, have a peek, and see if any attractions caught our eye. My friend and I received a free ice lolly each before we went up the lift, and the views were amazing. The provided free telescopes to zoom in on each zone was clear. However, you can't shake the feeling that the tower is dated and could use some redecorating and updated images of the panoramic views they had.
