What an awesome little pub! Great atmosphere, great music, and the owner Robert was amazingly hospitable, and leading the dance moves all the way. Very convenient location, and great to have a chit chat with some staff and fellow pub goers. Can't wait to go...More

Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi
Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist
attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens,
temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for
strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine
itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the
mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers,
picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the
