    Despite being entirely online (during COVID19), I had a great time! The tour guide was very knowledgeable, and I learned so much about the Fushimi Inari shrine! Thank you Akiko-san!

    We got recommended by a friend saying it was epic! It was truely AMAZING! This is definitely a must do on the list if you come to Kyoto! The cocktails were amazing we just kept wanting more and the staff are super friendly and helpful at recommending the best to suit what taste you would like! We couldn’t get over the set up nothing was out of place and almost felt like Harry Potter world! We thought the price of drinks were on par with what you pay for really good cocktails in Japan!

    Great little bar on the 1st (ground) floor with 2 more rooms up above. The barman (Nobu) was really friendly/easy going and made an effort to involve me in the conversation with a regular as I had stopped by on my own.
    Good prices and a wide choice of drinks and they have a lot of local beers/gins too. Great location right at the north end of Pontocho.
    Well worth checking this place out whether you live in Kyoto or are here on vacation.

    Pretty lit, smoking area on the third floor and a all dancing areal on the forth floor. If you are trying to party in Kyoto definitely check this place out

    I've been to this bar several times, and I always come with my friends when they're visiting Kyoto.
    The staff is very nice and professional, the cocktails are good and on the week end Djs are coming to play a large set of RnB, Pop or EDM music.
    There's a darts board, you can smoke the shisha and the decoration is very nice. Super cool atmosphere overall.
    I always have a great time there and I recommend it lots!

    Hands down the best night club in Kyoto. Lived in Kyoto for 4 years for my undergrad and I went to World soooo many times. The music is good (usually plays all genres) and the staff are super friendly and nice. They also get famous artists from around the world for a decent cover charge (I saw Steve Aoki and R3HAB). Would definitely go whenever I come visit Kyoto again. Thank you for all the amazing memories!

    What a great way to get to know the true heart of Kyoto. We went into bars and restaurants we never would have felt comfortable going in as "tourists." We were so pleasantly surprised at each establishment how we were welcomed and enjoyed interacting with the locals. My husband and I were the only ones on the tour, so we got a personalized tour. Glen was a great guide. Highly recommend this experience!

    Went there on a Friday evening with a couple of friends. Started to get crowded at 12.30ish. Guests and staff was really nice. Great atmosphere. Foreigners pay ¥1000 including a free drink ticket. Drinks are quite sophisticated and fair amount of alcohol.

    you will receive up to 5 different laminated menus detailing the whisky(s) they have available. If you are here, then obviously Japanese whisky is the way to go. quite simply, it is an amazing whisky bar with all the necessary attention paid to the details.

    I was 99% convinced I was in the wrong area as there is very little else in the area (but it’s not far from kiyamachi), but it has a seriously awesome, chill vibe. There are a bunch of standard rules for shisha places similar to back home (US) but not for the purposes of extortion. I would say this is the best shisha place in Kyoto, perhaps Japan, and I’ve been to about 10 places from Okinawa to Sapporo. Very well done to the owner hope this place is here next time I visit

    This little bar has an amazing selection of fair priced whiskys but it’s the manager, Akira, who makes this place stand out. He is such a funny and happy man who smiles all the time and chats with everyone. My wife and I went on a week day and got to chat with him for hours. Went twice during our 4 night stay actually!
