Travel Date: 28 October 2010
Location: Kyoto city
There wasn’t a day that I didn’t come to Kyoto Station during my 5-day-stay in Kyoto. Designed by architect Hara Hiroshi (原広司), this impressive building is so huge and modern compares with other traditional Japanese temples and buildings nearby. If I remember correctly, the Isetan department store inside this building consists of 13 floors altogether. Hell yeahs.
10th Floor: Ramen-koji
Ramen-koji (拉麺小路) is a ramen street where it gathers several ramen shops from all over the country in one place. I visited this one called Takara-ya (宝屋) – now closed, and had their Takara-ya ramen for dinner. Not too bad at all for a 650 yen bowl. A happy diner I am. :D [Tabelog info]
To The Open Air Roof
Sky is dark when the dinner’s done. Next thing to do is to head up to the open air area on top and chill, all while watching the not-exactly-the-most-beautiful Kyoto Tower. Lols.
How To Get There
- Very likely Kyoto Station will be the place to touch down in Kyoto
