Kyoto Station

The branch of Isetan Department Store in Kyoto is part of the very impressive Kyoto station complex, designed by architect Hiroshi Hara. The station complex, which opened in 1997, also includes a hotel, a theater, and numerous restaurants and shops.

Isetan's basement-level food floor offers the usual wide mix of Japanese, Western and Asian prepared foods, and it's a convenient place to buy a bento or other take-away food before catching the train upstairs.
