Kyoto Station

  • Shimokyō-ku, Kyoto-shi, Kyoto Prefecture

This station building was designed by Hara Hiroshi and opened in 1997 as one of the commemorative projects of 1,200th anniversary (1994) of transfer of the capital from Nara to Kyoto. The enormous space with 4,000 plate glasses is very impressive.
