Reservation Request Service

What is a Reservation Request?
A Sharing Kyoto Reservation Request allows you to reserve Kyoto restaurants that only accept bookings in Japanese over the phone by having our staff call on your behalf.
This service was born out of a desire by the Sharing Kyoto staff to have travelers enjoy the truly incredible, homely restaurants of Kyoto rather than those often crowded by tourists.
However, as it's often these restaurants that struggle the most with bookings due to the language barrier, we decided to create this service and allow you to make reservations without having to call the restaurant directly.
Most of the restaurants available are not listed on other non-Japanese booking websites, so if you find one that piques your interest, submit a request and enjoy an unforgettable time in Kyoto.
As this service only began in early 2020, additional restaurants will continue to be added with time.

Once Sharing Kyoto has received your request, you will be contacted via email and through the "Requests" page in the "My Menu" tab.
We will do our best to contact you within 3 business days; however, due to the nature of the service, there is a possibility that it may take time for reservations to be confirmed. Reservations are also not guaranteed.

Please refrain from submitting reservation requests in the 3 business days prior to the reservation. While we will do our best to service the request, Kyoto is home to many small restaurants with limited capacity, so such short notice reservations often result in undesirable outcomes. We recommend that you submit reservation requests at least 1-week prior to the reservation.
