This is a must-see attraction when visiting downtown Kyoto! Located beside Kyoto Station, Aqua Fantasy is an amazing show of water and lights synchronized to music. Free to the public.

Can’t beat free. It’s fun if you are in the area to see. Runs about 15 min. Let’s just say it’s not the Belagio! Also It’s fun to see Kyoto tower which is right next door. ENJOY!

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
tourists and local business travelers, making it a
competitive location for ever-new commercial
structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
