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

Just by walking around the streets, you can still feel the remnants of ancient Japan.


This feeling turns magical at night, when the warm lights of the restaurants and bars turn on, and the locals go out to enjoy some drinks and good food.

Kyoto's restaurants and bars look very different from those in other areas of Japan. It's ofen a challenge for even the locals to gain entry to them, as they are often elegant and crowded. 

In this Kyoto night food tour, our friendly local guide will take you to three different places that are normally hard to find for tourists.

There, we can eat and drink together like the locals do. Each of these restaurants has a strong concept and atmosphere.

To start, we'll walk around the Gion area and head to the first izakaya. On the streets, we'll see many old Kyoto-style buildings with machiya architecture, as well as tea houses.

At the first location, we'll enjoy Kyoto vegetables or meats with simple seasoning in order to taste the ingredient's pure flavors.
At the second restaurant, we'll enjoy mouth-watering tempura skewers paired with green tea drinks, basking in the retro (Showa-era) atmosphere.

Finally, we'll go to a sake standing bar to sample local sake. (Non-alcohol menu is also available)

Any type of traveler can enjoy this food tour, whether you're traveling with family, friends, or your're solo traveler.
Don't worry if you don't know what to eat or drink. Our guide will help you order and will explain everything! 


Let's try local food that you can only find in Kyoto, and explore the backstreets of this beautiful city with our local guide!
