Standing 131 meters tall, Kyoto Tower is tallest structure in Kyoto. Located opposite Kyoto Station, the tower can be seen at every angle in the city. The tower was completed in 1964 even though it has been the subject of controversy during its planning phase. Since I have some time to spare, I decided to went up the Observation Deck.
