Ohayou!

I am going to be visiting Kyoto in a few months (as well as Tokyo and possibly Akihabara). Does anyone have any suggestions of where to go for a person's first time there?

Doumo, doumo!

Yeah, it's a traditional British pub really. BTW, we have a pub in the nearby city, called The C o c k Inn. A gay pub apparently, never checked. LOL! Gotta love them pub names though!

Kawaramachi is the city centre, you'll find all the shops, bars, etc. there. The Hub is a nice pub, Pig and Whistle also. Nearby the Hub you'll find Bar Isn't It, a club full of foreigners usually. Places to eat: Shakey's all you can eat pizza, pasta, salad. A bit nasty, but cheap. Around 900 yen. Also check out Bikkuri Donkey, I thought it was quite fun! There are many choices where to eat or drink, shouldn't be a prob. Shopping: check out a long covered mall, Angel Street I think it is called. If you need a sports shop, Mitsuhashi Sports has it all. Anyway, there are shops all over Kawaramachi!

There is this other lively area called Saiin. Much smaller than Kawaramachi though. There are some good karaoke places, cafes.

Sightseeing wise, I highly recommend Sanjusangendo. One of the most impressive temples around! Also check out Ryoanji. Nice place. Okazaki Area is also worth a visit. It has quite a few art galleries, museums, a zoo and a shrine called Heian Jingu. Basically, Kyoto has everything in terms of sightseeing. It's just the matter of what you want to see really and having enough time to do it!

Hope you like the city, let me know anyway!

Surprised Donkey (bikkuri Donkey) kicks but. Rumor is that they use worm meat. This is perpetuated by employees not being able to enter the locked freezer area.

haha! I'm serious.

Kyoto is a great place. Hope you have oodles of fun.
