Went here for a drink, then came back 1/2 hour later for dinner. Thought is was bar food, but the food was terrific. Great place to dine overlooking the canal. Service was excellent, drinks were good and all in all a great ambiance and place to be.

I went to Chi Chi on my last night in Kyoto and am so sad I only found it then. The bar and restaurant were run by amazing people. I came alone but it never felt like I was because everyone was so nice. Also the locals were incredibly nice and funny too. The food and drink wasn't expensive and... More

Dining ChiChi was our favourite place, hands down, to finish each day in Kyoto. The bar is located in an ideal spot looking right over the canal and I imagine the views in cherry blossom season would be fantastic. The bar offers an formidable selection of cocktails and a number of beers on tap as well as champagnes and sparkling... More

We ended up in Chi-chi' most nights during our stay in Kyoto. Whether we had been out shopping or sightseeing this bar fit the bill regardless of what mood we were in. The location on the canal side is fantastic for ambiance and people watching whilst being away from the tackier end of the district. We were always treated with... More

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
