Here we are! Came back to Kyoto Station again for our last night visited Kyoto. We planned to meet a friend of mine who were in Japan to for their prewedding (they took their own photos!).

While we were waiting for them to arrived, we had plenty of time to explore the station. What I wanted to do since we arrived on our first day is going to the rooftop and also take photo with the giant Christmas Tree.

It was just 26th of December 2016 that I wished to take photo with the Christmas tree. Unfortunately, they blocked the surrounding of the tree because they were going to uninstalled it soon. 😦

Next, we headed to the rooftop. Well, it was a very high up there. Right in front of the Christmas tree, there is a loooong staircase to the rooftop. It was very challenging haha

Don’t worry, actually they provide elevator on the right side of the staircase to go up.

As we arrived the rooftop, I looked back. We were so high up!

The rooftop was nothing other than a place to see the city. There were no observation deck. It was all covered with glass window. Since Japanese always concern about customer’s safety, I can understand why the is no observation deck.

It was not so crowded at the rooftop and the visitors were silently enjoying the rooftop.

It’s quite a long way up, right?

There is a bridge that connected to inside the shopping mall. Other than fashion shops, it’s more occupied with restaurants and cafes. When we walked around, there are lots of restaurants with long queue. Mostly are ramen restaurants.

Alright, finally my friends arrived at Kyoto Station. We looked for a restaurant that still open for the night.

He was my kindergarten friend who is now taking his master in Germany. His fiancee is working in Jakarta. We met for few times before. This was the first time we hangout together, never have time in Jakarta since we are very busy with works.
