Pontocho District

Journey to the dining mecca of Kyoto at what is arguably the city's most atmospheric street.

Journey to the dining mecca of Kyoto

This narrow alley comes alive at night and offers a range of culinary options from the inexpensive to fine dining establishments. During warmer months, many restaurants build temporary platforms overlooking the Kamagowa River for kawayuka (terrace dining). This is also a popular area for geisha and geiko entertainment, so you might spot one of these eye-catching women at dusk if you’re lucky.
