Kyoto City

Here's the low-down on what to do in Kyoto at night! From bars to illuminated temples, here's what to do in Kyoto after an awesome day of sight-seeing! Enjoy!

Feel free to follow favy!


L'EscaMoteur Bar

L'Escamoteur is a must-visit bar in Kyoto. Although the drinks are pricey, it is well worth it. The owner mixes magic and cocktails, and it makes for an incomparable atmosphere. Some even say it is the best bar they've ever been to! You'd better see for yourself!

Soradoko Rooftop Garden

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.

-from March 30th to April 8th

Address: 294 Kiyomizu 1-chome, Higashiyama Ward, Kyoto, Kyoto

The Kyoto Higashiyama Hanatouro (京都東山花灯路)

Kyoto Higashiyama Hanatouro is a spring illumination festival held in the ancient streets of Kyoto. It is also held at the Kodaiji Temple (高台寺). The designated streets lit by beautiful lanterns lead to the foothills of the Higashiyama Mountain. It is held from March 9th to March 18th 2018

Nishiki Market

Nishiki Market is called "Kyoto's kitchen" because of all the delicious and cheap food that is readily available. You can walk around the market and try all types of interesting street food! If you're on a budget or interested in trying tons of Kyoto specialties, this is the place to visit. You can have, for example, grilled mochi, tofu doughnuts, interesting ice cream flavors, etc.

Kamogawa River

Kamogawa river is particularly beautiful at night and is a great place to take a stroll. It is a very popular date spot by the way. Many people will sit down by the river and drink by the river. You can also try one of the many delicious restaurants by the river.


There are so many fun activities to try in Kyoto, as much during the day or at night. Hopefully you'll have enough time to try the best of everything!

I love travelling and discovering new cuisines. Japan has a panoply of local dishes to try. I also love yoga, coffee, reading, and cycling.
