Kyoto Tower rises to the sky in front of Kyoto Station. From the observation
deck at 100 meters above the ground, visitors enjoy a 360 degree
panoramic view of the city of Kyoto. On a clear day, visitors can see as far as
Osaka. The Tower character, Towawa-chan, who was born to commemorate it's 40th
anniversary makes an appearance in the observation deck on
Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
