“The best train station roof in Japan?”
Never mind the amazing shops, the fabulous restaurant, the easy access to the other parts of Kyoto. The highlight of JR Kyoto Station is the roof. The roof is amazing.
To get a closer look at the roof, you can travel to the sky garden. It takes nine consecutive escalators to reach the top; a place called ‘Happy Terrace’. Here you can admire the views of Kyoto for free, and on the way back down the endless escalators, you can once again admire the roof.
