Wat je gaat doen
For years I’ve been hearing that Kyoto doesn’t have a great nightlife so people should stay in Ōsaka if they are looking for excitement & then do day trips from there to Kyoto & Nara. People who actually don’t know Kyoto say these things. Kyoto has a very vibrant & exciting nightlife. Kyoto has become overrun with tourists over the past few years but you can still manage to find places that aren’t crowded with tourists & that’s my goal for your experience with me. We will go to places that are intimidating to enter for people who don’t speak Japanese. The places where most tourists will walk by & wonder what’s served there. First, we will go to a “tachnomi” or “stand up bar” where many people gather after work for drinks & small dishes. After that, we will squeeze into a tiny bar where locals sometimes sing karaoke songs & often strike up a conversation with new faces because everyone is seated together. The owner or “mama” will definitely visit with us & I’ll translate everything. Finally, we will head to a “machiya” / tea house with historic atmosphere that serves alcohol & food. I can direct you where to go from there as it’s near the nightlife district!
I’m 1 of only 2 “Destination Experts” in the world on TripAdvisor for Kyoto. I’ve been advising people on TripAdvisor for over a decade. I’ve lived in Japan for over 20 years. I used to do private tours in Kyoto booked on “Tours By Locals” & still get requests from people who are connected with former clients. I’ve been told that meeting me was the highlight of many people’s trips! I’ve had people re-schedule their entire vacations in order to spend one or two days with me & that always surprises me. I also host “Hangouts” on Couchsurfing currently & have great reviews.

Waar je zult zijn
All 3 places on the tour are locally owned businesses as opposed to all of the restaurant & bar chains that are actually popping up more & more in Kyoto these days. I want you to experience what I did 20 years ago in Kyoto & get that same feeling that’s disappearing in the more famous areas. It’s out there & I still know how to find it.
