“Go! Go! In stairs” Going up Kyoto Tower in stairs

“Going up Kyoto Tower in stairs” is a popular event held every spring and autumn. This year, it will also be held on December 28, in commemoration of Kyoto Tower’s 55th anniversary. At this event, you can experience climbing 355 stairs inside the tower from the first to the fifth floor of the observatory room. A certificate with a limited edition design for this event will be given to the first 1,000 people who reach the top.  

In addition to this, if you show past certificates to the staff at the goal, you can get a
tawamikuji (a Kyoto Tower oracle) and a Tawawa-chan ema (a votive picture of Kyoto Tower’s mascot, Tawawa-chan). Both can be dedicated to the Tawawa-chan Shrine on the fifth floor.

Light-up color for the anniversary will be chosen by vote

Blue, yellow, red, and teal with white for the tower’s light-up

Those who have finished climbing the stairs can also get a voting sticker and vote for which color they want for the tower’s light-up. The one with the most votes will be used for the tower’s light-up on the event day.

If you think you’re physically fit, why not challenge yourself to this activity during your Japan trip?
