You will experience 5 food and drink stops, with something for everyone. Start off in a retro “Showa-era” (post war Japan) restaurant to try seasonal and regional, tasty dishes. Next try several types of yakitori (charcoal grilled skewers) in a classic Pontocho eatery. Head over to a privately owned Sake tasting shop to try local nihonshu (rice wine). Bring the kids, because there is even a local plum soda for a kid friendly tasting at this quaint backstreet spot run by a passionate entrepreneur who celebrates Kyoto sake culture. Head on to a 100+ year old soba restaurant for handmade noodle dishes. We are sure you will feel pretty full by this point but don’t forget to save a little room for a tasty green tea dessert at trendy new neighboorhood spot that blends tradition with modern innovation.
