Thanks!

    Walking around the Gion area and Nishiki Market is pretty fun.Nishiki Market In Gion there's a restaurant called Isomatsu nearby the Kawaramachi Station, check this FB page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Isomatsu/459522900755467 - No one speaks english there and the menu is in Japanese, so you can say "Omakase" which means "Surprise me" and they LOVE that - you'll eat so good (if you get the sweet corn tempura you are lucky!)

    Nearby that station and by the water there are plenty of restaurant options and a small Whiskey bar Sasola, but everything there is written in Japanese characters, so I don't know the name in Japanese, but I have this card if you want to show it to someone.

    Kawaramachi StationOne tip: ask for a card with the information of where you're staying or going in the local language. It will be easier to ask if you think you are lost.


    Enjoy!

      Awesome answer, Joanna! I'm a community manager and I wanted to let you know that we updated Isomatsu (so I removed the comment to avoid confusion). Whenever you add an unknown place, someone from the Trippy team will update it shortly :) Thanks so much for sharing! · (1 likelikes)

    I spent a week in Kyoto and loved it. I wrote a blog post about that time to give an idea of some of the things you could get up to. It's easier for you to just read the post on my site:
