The concept for this dining floor is to provide a fun space to walk around and taste the gourmet dishes of Kyoto. Filled with popular regional restaurants, you can enjoy Kyoto cuisine at all hours of the day, from lunch through dinner. You are permitted to freely walk around with food, so you can enjoy dishes from multiple restaurants in a single visit. With convenient access next to Kyoto Station via a directly connected underground walkway, the dining area is easily accessible to both tourists and to businessmen enjoying a drink on their way home from work.
This floor provides expertly crafted souvenirs next to Kyoto Station, including everything from Kyoto's popular traditional sweets to pickled goods and cosmetics. The concept is to provide a market that offers high quality goods unique to Kyoto. In addition to standard Kyoto souvenir shops, you will also find products special to KYOTO TOWER SANDO, including a confectionery shop run by a former hotel pastry chef, and an organic granola shop frequented regularly by Kyoto women.
This floor offers the opportunity to experience traditional culture special to Kyoto. The concept is to provide memorable hands-on workshops. Kids and adults alike will enjoy participating in the workshops, which include making Japanese sweets, making yatsuhashi confections, courses on how to press sushi, painting Kiyomizuyaki ceramics, and making food samples.
