Fodor's Review

Kyoto's train station, derided as an eyesore by some and hailed as an architectural masterpiece by others, is more than just the city's central point of arrival and departure: the station houses dozens of shops and restaurants and offers great views of the city from the 12th floor. With time to kill before your train, enjoy a coffee at one of the many cafés or try one of a handful of the city's most famous ramen shops that are clustered on the 10th floor.
