In stark contrast to what we had spent the last two days looking at, this is Kyoto Station. Very very modern compared to all the temples and shrines that we had seen the day before.We were here to catch the Shinkasen train back to Tokyo, and had arrived a little early to have a little look around.
Size wise, it is similar to Sydney's Central Station, but much higher. There are shops, viewing platforms, and of course the trains. I think there may even be a hotel in there too if I remember correctly. If you look closely you will see the escalator that will take us to the roof, but that's for another day.
