Story & Recommendation
Experience a mixture of traditional Kyoto, modern Japan, and neon signs in Ponto-cho geisha district
Ponto-cho is a famous Hanamachi geisha district in Kyoto, and continues from Shijo-dori to Sanjo-dori. There are really many small alleys even narrower than the main alley at Ponto-cho, some of them leading to the other side while others are dead ends. There are many good restaurants by the alley, some of them cheap yakitori places while others offer fine dining kaiseki experiences, while yet others offer karaoke and drinks served by attractive women.
