Description

It's hard to miss the giant, lighthouse-style structure that is Kyoto Tower, as it pierces the sky high above the city's tranquil temples and historic landmarks.

The tower adds a dash of relative modernity to Kyoto's melting-pot of ancient culture. Plus, there's no finer view in the city than from its 100-meter-high observation deck. Take in panoramic views (you can see as far as Osaka on a clear day) and put your eye to free telescopes around the deck.

Insider tip

Aim to get to the tower just before golden hour. As the sun disappears behind the city's surrounding mountains Kyoto is quite the sight, temporarily doused in a fiery orange hue. Hopefully the weather plays ball on the day you choose to go!
