Kyoto Tower Reviews
Kyoto's highest structure offers an aerial view of the city Oct 04, 2008
I really like going up in the sky, despite my fear of heights, and enjoy a wide view of a city or area. The observation deck is 100 meters in the air, with the total length an 131 meters.
So, on my 3rd visit to Kyoto, I decided to go to the viewing platform of the Kyoto Tower. As I stayed in the Kyoto Tower Hotel, I got a 10% discount coupon.
But an adult entrance ticket is 770 yen (around 7 euros or around 9 US dollars). The price isn't that bad, but the view of Kyoto isn't as spectacular as in other cities I've visited.
But that's also to be expected of Kyoto, as the city is a wonderful place to visit for its gardens and temples. On a clear day, you can see the surrounding mountains. I did got some nice views of the temples and pagodas in the distance.
