11 of us dropped in for pre-dinner drinks. Beers had 5 cm heads so short-changed; further, my Chardonnay was a half-serve (70 ml) for ¥900. The wine was quite good but charging that for such a small serving is usurious. When I questioned this, despite...More

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
