This is a must do if you are in Kyoto. it is perfect for getting your bearings, and just plain old fabulous for getting great views! I loved it...and I'm afraid of heights. I was so busy looking out at everything that I didn't once (or hardly once) look down!
There are free binoculars available, and places of interest are marked on the walls pointing to where you can find them.
The tower viewing platform is 100metres above the ground. It is open year round from 9am - 9pm (last entry at 8.40pm). It costs 770yen per adult.

Directions: Right across the road from Kyoto can't miss it!
