Outdoor Dining Along Kamo River Kyoto

Kawadoko Deck Kyoto京都川床

One of the great pleasures of living in Kyoto is eating on the decks that overlook the Kamo River.

Every summer, the many restaurants that line parts of Kiyamachi and then Pontocho set up decks that face the river and are connected to the back of the restaurants.

This makes for wonderful dining, in the early evening as the sun goes down or later under the stars

A cold beer or cool choko of sake on the decks is about as good as it gets.

The decks are set up in late May or early June and will be in use until early September.
