Soradoko Rooftop Garden offers an unforgettable dinner/bar experience! It's only open for a limited time until September 30th, 2017, so make sure to check this place out when you are in Kyoto this summer. You get to watch one of the famous rivers, Kamogawa, and enjoy the summery atmosphere! Their popular drink is "Mizore Yamazaki", where you pour whiskey on top of shaved ice. They also have an all-you-can-drink option. Around a 3 minute walk from Sanjo station, or a 7-minute walk from Kawaramachi station.
