As a heads up/warning, this is a small, smoky bar area (that also has a delicious looking food menu). We could only stand the crushing smoke for about 5 minutes before having to leave, having not had a chance to taste the food. Figured I'd...More

Dropped in for a mid-afternoon beer while wandering around Kyoto. Great little spot to grab a cold one and a snack or something more. It is small so during crowds, expect to wait for seating for more than 2 people. Fast, friendly service, especially for...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
