If you can't handle the noddles and sushi this is a tiny pub at the back of Kyoto station that's very. Welcoming . Good range of beers and cocktails and the food looked OK too

After a long day temple-hopping, a decent beer or 3 was called for, and this place wasn't far from our hotel. It looks like a typical small Irish pub from the outside, and entering confirmed that. However, there was a over-riding smell of sour beer...More

A quaint little place tucked in along the row of shops, this place has a good amount of beers. The food is over priced, like all food in Japan, but it tasted pretty good. If you are fixing for a Guinness, you can have it....More

Very small (may be 30 seats) but comforting if you're in need of a bit of home. Limited menu but the pies were great (both the meat and the curry), prompt, friendly service (order and pay at the bar, delivered to your table) all for...More

Limited menu and only half was on offer on our night. Also ran out of some liquor for other patrons. We had pizza and curry which were small servings and dull/bland. Friendly staff and good atmosphere.

It might be just a small pub outside the main train station but it has loads of character! The staff are really friendly and speak excellent English. Well worth a visit if you're nearby, and considering it's outside the main station, it's easy to get...More

We were surprised to find an Irish pub in Kyoto... The beer was good, my wife had a Pina Colada and they played the song! It was very smoky, which destroyed the experience for us.

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
