Experience Details
As the sun sets and the city's lanterns cast their warm glow, Kyoto’s nightlife springs to life. Join Hiroshi-san, your spirited host, for an after-dark adventure in Kyoto! Explore key areas like Gion and the downtown district, go izakaya hopping, explore beloved watering holes, and make lifelong friends (and memories). When the night unfolds, the heart of Kyoto's nightlife can be found in its izakayas–traditional Japanese pubs brimming with character and flavor. These intimate establishments offer a glimpse into everyday life in Kyoto, where you can savor various tasty dishes and drinks, including sake and shochu. Step into these cozy hideaways to find yourself surrounded by the lively chatter of patrons, the aroma of grilled yakitori, and a warm ambiance that is uniquely Kyoto. Your host, Hiroshi, will take you to the best of the best–hop between several izakayas, feasting on food and sinking some cold ones as you go. Hiroshi hails from Otsu, neighboring Kyoto. His early years were a medley of sports–volleyball, rugby, swimming, and diving. He explored over 20 countries, residing temporarily in Germany, Denmark, and Canada, while also refining his skills as a sushi chef. Currently pursuing a Ph.D. in marine biology at Kyoto University, Hiroshi is passionate about ocean conservation. Becoming a guide was driven by his empathy for travelers navigating foreign lands. Hiroshi finds joy in showcasing Kyoto's charm and beyond, aiming to leave visitors with a memorable impression of Japan. Navigating Kyoto's nightlife isn't just about the venues; it's about the stories they hold and the memories they create. Explore Pontocho, a narrow alleyway adorned with traditional wooden buildings that house some of the city's most iconic izakayas. Wander through Gion, where the ancient geisha district comes alive with modern twists on traditional entertainment. Pop by Kiyamachi, where riverside bars beckon with their illuminated charm.
