Karaoke in Kyoto?

by wasabigirl

Hey! I hear Kyoto is the place to Karaoke. I'm going to be there Sept. 8-10th. Any suggested hot spots for Karaoke?

Re: Karaoke in Kyoto?

Hi!
Welcome to VT and Welcome to Japan :-)

Kyoto is the place to Karaoke???
Hmmm, sorry I haven't heard that...
In Kyoto, I'm sure there are a lot of Karaoke shops.
(And of course in Osaka, Tokyo....)

Be careful not to go into a small pub where the prices are not shown outside... sometimes they can be so expensive...

We usually go to "Jambo Karaoke"
They are famous karaoke shop.
Rather cheap.
The rooms are indivisual.
Are you coming with your friends?

Have a great time!
Ayurin in Osaka ,JAPAN :-)

You know, I was probably thinking of Osaka, not Kyoto. Thanks for the tip. We'll be in Osaka on Sept. 10-12 and we're supposed to stay with a friend of mine on Sept. 11th, but I haven't heard from her since we confirmed our flight! If we get stranded, do you have any suggestions of cheap, but relatively comfortable hotels?
Thanks!

Hi again!

About cheap and comfortable hotel...

I'm sorry I don't know about hotels in osaka...

In Kyoto, "Tour Club" hostel is famous.
I've never stayed there, but it looks nice and rather cheap.

Hope this helps.

Travel Tips for Kyoto

UGLY CONCRETE BUILDINGSI don't...

by kat_on_moray

UGLY CONCRETE BUILDINGS
I don't know how it happened, but it has happened all over the country: a bunch of foul, dirty, concrete monstrosities have been created to house the country's smartest students, public servants and any other unlucky bugger who has to visit one at anytime. They are an eyesore - they are ugly. Japan, the country of zen and beautiful temples, failed somewhere when they built these disasters....

Luv the CRUSH

by devmicha about ING

Absolutely my FAVOURITE bar in Kyoto. A nice mix of Japanese on the Fringe and Travelers come together.
ING is a small bar on the 2nd floor of a building on Kiyamachi just south of Hammid Kebaab. It is small and tends towards being crowded but the Owners are fantastic, the food is good and the beer is cheep.
The besr rockING collection in Kyoto too!

Keiseiki Set Course Part 2

by sacrebleu about Kyo-machiya Suishin

The restaurant has two-storey. We sat on a tatami table on the ground floor. The atmosphere was great with patrons drinking in the open bar and aroma came out from the open kitchen. Choosing what to eat was easy! The kaiseiki course menu is available in English! We had “Fushimi” which included 8 tasty courses. Although it was not of the highest quality nor it was a very posh restaurant (if you don’t know, the best kaiseiki can cost you hundreds of US dollars), it matched my expectation. Dishes were served in small portions. Kyoto is famous for its tofu. The tofu sheet was part of the first course was full of rich flavour which I had never tasted before. The sashimi and chopped mixed sashimi on rice were fresh and delicious. The pot-steamed hotchpotch (crab meat and wasabi) was tasty even though the sauce was a bit slimy. Tempura was beautiful and crunchy. To finish the set, we had green tea ice cream made with the green tea from a famous local tea-maker Giontsujiri. We couldn’t move after 8-course of small dishes! It was a great slow dining experience and I would definitely recommend to anybody who goes to Kyoto.

A Taste Of Real Japanese Culture At Gion Corner

by Confucius

Geisha kimono fashion shows are only one example of the traditional Japanese cultural performances that you can experience at Gion Corner. The geishas look exactly like those dolls you often see in the glass boxes decorating sushi restaurants in southern California.

The one hour daily program also features samples of koto music, tea ceremony, ikebana flower arrangement, kyogen ancient comic skits, and a bunraku puppet play. I'm a big fan of kyogen, and have autographs of the most famous performers! It helps if you previously studied a little Japanese language in college, but if you drink six shots of sake before the show then it will all seem just as hilarious.

If you are visiting Japan and only have a single day in Kyoto then this is one of the best choices for evening entertainment.

Yasaka-jinja

by sacrebleu

It takes about twenty minute walk from Sannenzaka to another must visit Buddhist temple, Yasaka Shrine. On your way, you will pass through all the shops built in Japanese traditional wooden houses along Sannenzaka and also the quieter part of Gion. Here is more beautiful than Gion Corner but likewise is full of restaurants, so I imagine would be a good choice for dinner.

Even though Yasaka-jinja is much much smaller than Kiyomizu-dera, it is one of the temples that the local would visit during Japanese New Year. The lanterns decorate the stage marked with names of festival sponsors are beautifully lit at night.
