  Tourist pose at Kyoto Station
by BorderHopper

Kyoto station could easily become a tourist trap due to its overwhelming size and for the fact that for a novice navigating around the station can be pretty confusing. Almost everything that is written in Japanese is also written in English, Chinese, and Korean, but its still hard to find people who speak your language in a pinch. Just take it easy, don't rush, and you'll find your way around Kyoto Station.

Unique Suggestions: If you need help find one of many tourist booths set up to help the wayward traveller.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
