Kyoto Station

Nearly everyone visiting Kyoto passes through Kyoto’s terminal station.
It connects Kyoto to Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Kanazawa, and other prefectures via Shinkansen, JR, and private railways. …more
Kyoto Station and the surrounding area have many shopping malls and restaurants, so there is no shortage of places to get souvenirs and have a bite to eat, even if you have to catch the Shinkansen soon.
There are also many things worth seeing within a 10-15 minute walk from the station. Toji Temple, where you can see a spectacular five-story pagoda up close (the market held every month on 21st is also fun); Higashi Honganji Temple, which recently completed major renovations in spring 2016; and the Kyoto Aquarium, where you can enjoy a dolphin show while the Shinkansen passes by in the background, are all particularly recommended.
