A girl and her father climb the stairs of Kyoto Tower in Kyoto's Shimogyo Ward on Oct. 9, 2016, as the emergency stairs inside the tower were opened to the public. Visitors to the tower are granted access to the 285-step spiral stairs twice a year, in spring and fall, where they can view the city of Kyoto from windows inside the tower while climbing.
