Tiny bar on the second floor of a fairly busy Kyoto street. A sign outside mentioned craft beer so I went in to find about 6 or 7 beers on-tap (mainly from Codeo & Kyoto Brewing Company) but no sign of any bottle list. Prices...More

Though small by comparison, Pontocho is one of Kyoto's
most spirited and memorable neighborhoods. A narrow
street straddling the Kamogawa River, it is Kyoto's
busiest nightlife spot. When darkness falls,
Pontocho's many signs and lanterns bolt to life,
making the area glow with invitations to passers-by to
