We finally went on Tuesday.

A student of mine gave us some tickets to visit Kyoto Tower. (Thank you!)

Neither of us had ever been there. I think this sort of thing is for tourists more than locals. I almost took my sister here when she visited last year, but changed my mind because it seemed a little expensive. Actually, it’s only ¥770 each. (click here English or Japanese)

We knew it would be a good topic for our blog this week, so we took plenty of pictures!

Nice view! 😉

Here is the eye viewer machine.

 It looks like the robot from that 1980`s movie, Short Circuit.  (movie info here)

It’s high above Kyoto and you can see a lot of things from up there. They say, if it’s very clear you can see to Osaka.

My niece, Anna, turned two recently (Happy Birthday!) and I forgot to get her a present! So we decided to bring her up to the top of Kyoto with us.

 

Thanks for reading!
