Machiya bars

Renovated spaces in Kyoto’s aged machiya (townhouses) have become popular locations for businesses. Some have been transformed into unique nightspots.

1. Bar K-ya in Kawara-cho is a prime example. It attracts a wide range of eager patrons, who wait in line in front of the bar during weekends and holidays.

2. Basic machiya layout combines a narrow entrance with a long interior. Bar K-ya utilizes this space for the main counter, also providing an annex with private rooms and a VIP room in a renovated kura (warehouse).

3. Popular drink choices include delicious fresh fruit and vegetable juices. Cocktails feature sudachi (Japanese citrus), pomegranates, fresh tomatoes, etc., so patrons can enjoy seasonal flavors depending on the time of year.

4. A patio illuminated by an ishi-doro (stone lantern) is a beautiful place for romantic dates. Be sure to see this glamorous nightspot.
