Pontocho Tours

Foodies who spend any time in Kyoto will want to dedicate at least one evening to Pontocho, an incredibly atmospheric dining area packed with restaurants and exclusive tea houses lining a narrow, cobbled alley just west of the Kamo River.

Visitors from around Japan and the world come here for the open-air dining along the river and the opportunity to spot apprentice and master geishas scurrying to their appointments. While most of the tea houses are difficult to visit without a connection, visitors will find a range of restaurants — everything from inexpensive yakitori to modern Kyoto cuisine – to choose from in the evenings.

Practical Info

Pontocho is rather quiet by day, so plan your visit for the evening hours to experience the alley at its best.
