While Kyoto preserves many of Japan's oldest traditions, the Kyoto Station is among the most modern in and out of the country.
On the Main floor inside Kyoto Station.
The evening view across the station.
Also, the bus terminals are right outside the Kyoto Station as well, which makes the station really busy in and out all day long (along with the locals visiting the department stores and shops inside the station.) Oh, and you can get Hirota cream puffs at the ticket house near the front of the station also. How cool is that.
