Story & Recommendation
The Takase River – A canal that cuts through the heart of Kyoto’s nightlife
The Takese River is a canal that was made for transporting rice and sake from Kyoto’s city center to the southern Fushimi Ward.
Running about 10 km from Nijo street, south of the Kyoto Imperial Palace, to the southern most tip of Kyoto City, this canal stayed active for over 300 years between 1611 and 1929.
The central city section of the canal boasts a bustling strip of restaurants, bars and cafes. In particular, the basin near the Hankyu Kyoto-kawaramachi Station is an especially popular spot with many of the area’s bars and restaurants open well into the early hours of the following day.
If you want to get a taste of Kyoto’s nightlife, then there’s nowhere better than the Takase River at night!
Below we’re going to show you the river in four parts, with a selection of our favorite restaurants and cafés that we’re sure you’ll love!
