We had the most amazing Japanese food & drink experience with Tatsuya. We went to places which were off the beaten track & are almost an underground culture known to the local Kyoto people. First we went through the famous Nishiki market to a bar which was very authentic & had 2 different kinds of sake with Tempura followed by a visit to an authentic izakaya where you are not allowed if you don’t speak Japanese. After a refreshing pint of beer & some cured fish we went along the Pontocho street to another restaurant which again served us 2 different kinds of sake with food. Through out the tour it felt as if we were a bunch of friends going on a night out & Tatsuya was funny & gave us a lot of local knowledge interspersed with anecdotes of the area. We had a great time & if you are visiting Kyoto please make this the highlight of your visit. You will not regret it!!
