Kyoto Tower Reflected

Kyoto Tower (京都タワー), an 800-ton steel observation tower, is the tallest structure in Kyoto.  The observation deck perches 100 metres above ground and its spire reaches to 131 metres, with the first part of the tower actually being a 9-storey building.  It was opened in 1964 to coincide with the Tokyo Olympics of that year.


Kyoto Tower reflected in the glass of Kyoto Station

I think it looks more beautiful reflected in the large glass panes of Kyoto Station than in reality.
