Not many English reviews of this place - and that's because it is really an authentic Japanese destination. Situated on Pontocho (get advice to find it if you can read the Japanese characters), this place was perfect for a romantic dinner for two. Our hotel concierge was able to book for us and confirm the menu prices over the phone.... More

The restaurant was recommended to us by out Hotel's Concierge, who also accompanied us to the place. We were greeted by the Chefs and were seated at the counter, which offered a great view and enabled us to see the skillful preparation of some dishes. Also, we were talking to two of the chefs, who spoke English fluently. The restaurant... More

Staying in Pontocho

Neighbourhood Profile
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 come inside and pull up a chair. Its restaurants and bars sprawl onto the riverbank, providing a friendly atmosphere and delicious food. Verandas are always filled with people young and old crowding tables, biting into hot yakitori or sipping cold beers. It is a culinary heart of Kyoto as much as one of its most laid-back, clamorous, and entertaining evening hotspots. Pontocho has more of an amiable vibrancy to it than an elegant one, attracting newcomers, local veterans, and everyone in between, in casual attire like sneakers and jeans.
