Kyoto Imperial Palace and a Classical Concert

Views of the moat around the imperial palace

This chapter contains images of our visit to Kyoto Gosho, the Imperial Palace seat of the Chrysanthemum Throne and to a concert at the station which shows off its unusual architecture and multi-storey spaces.

We also happened on a school concert in the station, as we were passing through that gives a good opportunity to see the vast 3-D spaces evoked by the architecture and the great inclining auditorium surfaces.

Coming out the top there was a panoramic view of Kyoto from the viewing platform.

The Kyoto buses have each stop marked like a metro would.
