Arriving in Kyoto station from Nagoya was amazing! The modern architecture of the railway station was fascinating. It's a huge station!!! Our hotel was a 15 minute walk to the station and it boosts restaurants inside so we went there to eat sometimes.
The station building has different floors dedicated to shopping, dining, and entertainment. The top floor had a garden. It was really beautiful with the bamboo trees planted every where. You get a panoramic view of Kyoto.
