Kyoto Station, a large, futuristic, 15-story structure, is the most important transportation hub in Kyoto and one of largest buildings in Japan, with a shopping mall, hotel, movie theater, department store, and several local government facilities.
The current Kyoto Station opened in 1997, commemorating Kyoto's 1,200th anniversary, succeding older stations that were successively built there since 1877.
The underground facilities of the station, including the shopping mall Porta beneath the station square, were constructed when the subway opened in 1981. A building to the south of it houses the Tokaido Shinkansen high-speed train.
