We are coffee lovers & had ‘Niti’ on our “must visit” list before we left home. We are a huge fan of Chef Peter Gilmore & had read an article by Jane Lawson (although her Tour is what we wanted, it is out of our...More
We were there around 9.30ish and were welcomed by the bartender. There was a seating charge of 1000jpy per person, and we were the only ones there. The female bartender was very lovely, chatting with us and even made a special cocktail for me that...More

Cafe by day, bar by night. Hard to find in a small street, if you are passing in Gion try to pay this place a visit. It is ideal during the day for a quick stop for coffee or refreshments. They make excellent coffee in...More
We discovered this place because of a recommendation from our concierge. What a great cozy little restaurant /bar. Look for a white sign that says Niti in small black letters. FYI...there is a cover to be seated but well worth it. We were seated at...More
Great little bar tucked away on a side street in Gion. Our bartender, Aoi, is awesome - friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. She taught us a lot about Japanese whiskey, sake, and beer! Note that there was a 1000 yen cover per person on a Friday...More
This is a cozy little bar smack in the middle of Gion. We went here for post-dinner drinks and it was not hard to find the place, which was tucked into one of the little side alleys. There are two stories in this bar, with...More
I'm just out of Gion Niti, and it was an exceptional experience, though exceptional seems to be the norm in Kyoto and Japan in general.

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 lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
