We went to just do some sake tasting and the young man inside that tended to us was so sweet and helpful. He really made it a pleasant experience. Not sure I leaned much about sake but a nice way to get a drink.
The 1000 yen tasting sake menu featured four sake samples, three of which were bad, and one of which was OK. Cheap, yes, but the price reflected the quality.
The space is a bit dingy, although the service was great.
After reading all those great reviews, we wanted to try this bar after dinner last night. But we were both disappointed. The furnishing seems a bit cheap and we were the only guests. The staff was just standing in the corner watching us while we...More

Though small by comparison, Pontocho is one of Kyoto's most spirited and memorable neighborhoods. A narrow street straddling the Kamogawa River, it is Kyoto's busiest nightlife spot. When darkness falls, Pontocho's many signs and lanterns bolt to life, making the area glow with invitations to passers-by to come inside and pull up a chair. Its restaurants and bars sprawl onto the riverbank, providing a friendly
atmosphere and delicious food. Verandas are always filled with people young and old crowding tables, biting into hot yakitori or sipping cold beers. It is a culinary heart of Kyoto as much as one of its most laid-back, clamorous, and entertaining evening hotspots. Pontocho has more of an amiable vibrancy to it than an elegant one, attracting newcomers, local veterans, and everyone in between, in casual attire like sneakers and jeans.
