Popped into here after a night looking for Geishas, they did offer me a Guinness after spotting my Irish accent, but went instead for the Matcha Beer. When in Rome.

Had this place suggested to us by a guide in Osaka. Found it just in time for the England v Argentina game but all of a sudden tv goes out! To his credit the guy behind the bar worked his socks off to get it...fixed and it came on as the anthems were being sung. Got the biggest cheer of the night. Beers and G&Ts perfectly acceptable, didn’t try the food but people around us seemed to be enjoying the snacks they had ordered. The bar is only small but this added to the atmosphere.More

Stopped in for a pint and chips after walking through the craziness of Gion. It was nice to get a pint of cider after traveling in Japan with sake and tea galore. The bartender was nice and the chips crispy. They had the rugby game...on in preparation for the World Cup and we were able to relax while watching the game. Menu is completely western and a nice change of pace. Prices were not bad either. Stop in if you need a bit of English fare in Japan.More

We stopped in on a hot afternoon after touring the Gion district of Kyoto. We had a large party which they accommodated well. Service was good and the staff friendly. My boyfriend ordered a gin & tonic which was so good I had to have...one (and I usually don't drink gin.) We had a great time. Will visit again if I am ever back in this area.More

We were waiting 15min to get the beers and the bar was almost empty. While we were waiting the bartender was talking with the guys around.After 15min she realized that we were still waiting our beers and finally she brought it. 5 min later, the...bartender's friends came into the bar and they "suggest" us to change the table to other smaller and narrowed. I guess, the bartender realized we were angry and he listened "tripadvisor" and tried to repair it with free frenchfries, anyway to late. Bad experience, bad service.More

Dropped in for a drink by myself and sat at the bar - had a pint but also got a free taste of a Japanese whisky, plus the bar staff were very friendly and made me feel very much at home! Great vibe and a...really good place to enjoy a couple of beers in Kyoto, loved it!More

Popped in here to watch the world cup match. There were two large HD tv's, so a worthy stop if you're looking for a sports bar. Place was pretty basic with a few tables and chairs. Had a handful of beers on tap + some...spirits. Steer clear of the red wine however... Not a place you'll remember long after your visit, but its a decent spot for a quick beer.More

Great food, especially the smoked cheese platter, the propper pours on the Guinness, the atmosphere. Great place to have a pint and relax.

Gion
Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko"
in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and
entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners,
Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with
gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the
streets on their way to and from work, where they fan
dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion
