Photographer's Note

Kyoto Railway Station building has been described by Lonely Planet as a "Futuristic Cathedral for the transportation age". It was opened in September 1997 amid controversy with critics describing it as out of keeping with the very traditional architecture of Kyoto. Whatever, it is a striking glass and steel structure which incorporates a shopping mall, a hotel, a movie theatre, a department store, an aerial skywalk and several local government facilities all under one fifteen-story roof.

This photo was taken when we wandered through the huge main atrium one evening and shows just part of the ten storey escalator and ten storey staircase.
