Kyoto train station


Kyoto attracts many tourists with its many temples, but the more visited site in the city surprisingly is an ultramodern building. It's the train station, built in 1997 by the architect Hiroshi Hara. It's a true city in the city with a hotel, a department store, many shops and restaurants. Each day, it's more than 240.000 peoples who used that station.
