    Kyoto Kyoto-shi Higashiyama-ku Gionmachikitagawa 286
    "This classic izakaya (Japanese-style pub) optimizes the concept of a ""hole in the wall."" It is located a five-minute walk from Gion-Shijo Station just down a narrow alleyway off of Shijo Street. Look for the sign on Shijo Street. The somehow nostalgic izakaya serves home-style obanzai (a simple traditional cuisine of Kyoto). It features counter seating on the first floor and Japanese-style rooms on the second floor and is popular for offering reasonably priced food despite its location in central Gion. Their specialty is tekka meshi, which features a bowl of rice topped with tuna that has been pickled in a special soy sauce. The dish, which is even mentioned on the izakaya's sign, is the perfect meal to cap off a night out."

    祇園のロケーションでありながら、庶民的な居酒屋。”炊いたん”等京言葉のメニューが並びます。 素朴な味付けとリーゾナブルなお値段が嬉しい。また行きたいです。

  • Gion Yata Bar

    Kyoto Kyoto-shi Higashiyama-ku Motoyoshicho
    This machiya bar is in Gion Shimbashi, a designated traditional architecture preservation district. The renovated building was once a chaya style tea house, and now the first floor has a restaurant serving Kyoto vegetables, while the second floor has a speakeasy-style bar. On opening, the neighborhood had no bars allowing walk-in customers, so this was created to be a welcoming space for all-comers. The shop offers malt whisky, cocktails, sake, and wine in a modern atmosphere. The shop requires you to take your shoes off on entry for a deeply relaxing place. It's common to see lone drinkers and sightseers from abroad.

    Kyoto Pref. Kyoutoshi Yamashina-ku Takehanatakenokaidouchou 65 Kikubiru 1F

    マメに足を運んで欲しい願いであずきって名前なんだそうです。 喫茶店の様な硝子扉の奥は中央にカウンター席。入り口近くにいくつかのテーブル席。 こじんまりとした感じ。 会員カードを作ると割引きになったり、 飲み放題が延長出来たりとお得です。 費用はかかりますが、その日から会員価格なので元は取れます。 永久会員です。 今回は、男2人で、 回りは女子会やカップル。女子受けしそうなお店なので女子が多いです...

Kyoto Areas

around-area-map

Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
