Get together for a great time at this outdoor food court!
Located a 5-minute walk from Kyoto Station, Sujin Shinmachi is a newly formed outdoor food court made up of food stalls.
With the likes of Michelin Bib Gourmand awarded stalls, this gathering of popular Kyoto back-alley eateries gives you the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life and try foods only found here.
Sujin Shinmachi is only going to be around until the summer of 2020, so all the food stalls are run out of shipping containers, and the seating area is covered with plastic sheets, giving it an indoor-outdoor vibe.
However, this outdoorsiness works to give this gathering of food stalls its biggest draw, its amazingly open, lively, and exciting atmosphere.
Another big draw of Sujin Shinmachi is the lively conversations everyone has with each other. You’ll often see complete strangers having a great time together over some food and drinks after randomly sitting down next to one another and starting up a conversation.
People from all around the world, including locals, come to drink at Sujin Shinmachi, so it’s must check out in Kyoto for anyone wanting to meet and hang out with a melting pot of people.
