Kyoto Station Area

Introducing Kyoto Station Area

Dominated by the eponymous Kyoto Station, this neighbourhood serves as the gateway to Kyoto. Apart from the impressive station building itself, this area is not particularly attractive. That said, there are a few worthwhile sights here: Higashi Hongan-ji and Nishi Hongan-ji are two vast temples within walking distance of the station.
