Another View of the Tower
While I was taking some photos at the western side of Kyoto station, I noticed that there is another good spot to view the Kyoto Tower. My previous BLOG photo of the Kyoto Tower was taken from the eastern side. Actually, there are many points of view you can get of the tower from around the station and beyond. So maybe when you're in Kyoto you might want to try for some unique shots of the Kyoto Tower.
Access to the Kyoto Tower is easy, it's just north of the Kyoto train station. Japan Rail (JR), Kintetsu Railway, the Shinkansen, and the Kyoto Municipal Subway all have stops in or under the station complex. The Kyoto Tower provides a very good view of the city. You might even see some sights from the tower that you decide to explore more closely later. My favourite time to visit the tower is at sunset and then staying there for about an hour after it.
With Higashiyama Hanatouro happening at the moment, it certainly is a good time to be visiting Kyoto. How time has flown, and I haven't posted many BLOGs since December's Arashiyama Hanatouro. I went to the Higashiyama Hanatouro last night, so I'm planning to post another BLOG later today or tomorrow with a photo from that. Happy Travels.
This photo was taken with a Nikon D700 camera and an AF Nikkor 50f/1.8D lens. It was captured as RAW (.NEF) file and post processed in DxO Optics Pro. I made the following adjustments: Default camera and lens corrections applied; DxO Smart lighting (slight) applied; DxO Clear View applied at default setting; PRIME Noise Reduction applied; Highlights reduced; Contrast and Microcontrast levels increased; and Vibrancy Increased.
