【FUN FACTS】Traditional kimonos have various kinds of patterns, such as geometric designs, natural phenomenons, plants, and animals. In Japan, where the four seasons are distinct, people especially like patterns depicting seasonal flowers and plants. Cherry blossoms and peonies are representative flowers of spring, hydrangeas and morning glories are associated with summer, chrysanthemums and bush clovers reflect fall, and pine or camellias convey the wintertime. A kimono with a flower motif is often worn about one month ahead of the blooming season to hint at and celebrate the coming season. A multi-flower motif or abstracted pattern, such as leafless cherry blossoms, may be enjoyed throughout the year, regardless of the seasons.
【NEARBY AREA INTRODUCTION】
Kyoto is the ancient capital, but you may be surprised to see the futuristic architecture that makes up Kyoto Station when you arrive. The present Kyoto Station Building was opened to the public in 1997. The building plan gave rise to public controversy involving not only Kyoto citizens but also the entire nation, as many criticized the futuristic appearance for spoiling the original scenery and historic roots of Kyoto. But 20 years later, it seems the ultra-modern architecture has slowly fit into the townscape of Kyoto. Kyoto Station Building houses restaurants, shops, a hotel, a museum, The Sky Garden and many more facilities. Explore all that Kyoto Station has to offer, and maybe even walk the 171-step Grand Stairway!
