The Trip Creator

Hello. I'm Shoto.

Kyoto is a very special place in Japan where you can really feel the authentic and traditional Japan.
This is because Kyoto used to be the capital of Japan, and a lot of Japanese culture started here.

Just by walking around the streets, you can feel the ancient times of Japan.
This feeling gets even more magical at night when the izakaya lights go on, and local go out to enjoy some drinks and good food.

In our bar hopping tour, a friendly local guide will take you to three different izakaya bars. There we can eat and drink together like the locals do.
In the Pontocho area, there are many small pubs and bars offering various types of food and drinks. Each of these izakayas has a strong concept and atmosphere. At first bar, we can try tempura and matcha beer (of course there are more choices). At the second bar, we can enjoy traditional Kyoto vegetables and foods. And finally, we'll go to a standing bar and try many kinds of sake and alcohol.

Don't worry if you don't know what to eat and drink in the izakaya, our guide will help you order and explain everything!
Let's try local food and drinks that you can only try in Kyoto!
