I’d gotten to the shinkansen platform at Himeji station early for my train to Shin-Kobe so I settled down for a bit of a snack. As I was early I’d planned on jumping on an earlier train. A quick look at Hyperdia told me one would be arriving soon… it did, and for some reason I just sat there, I was probably snacking away – sigh. Anyway, another train arrived soon and I was on my way for the 26 minute train ride to Shin-Kobe.
Another hidden gem! A 10 minute walk south of Himeji Station is a small pub that has a great food and drink menu. It’s on the corner down the stairs.
First thing I want to say is that this is the most absolutely superb place to visit if you wish to sample sake.
Kokoromi is situated under the shinkansen lines at Himeji station, south east side.
My how 2018 has flown by.
I was lucky enough to start 2018 with a short break in Singapore before returning home in the new year.
Drinking in Singapore can be a very expensive pastime if you don’t know the rules:
- Go to restaurants that aren’t targeted at tourists or expats – you can still get a long neck of Tiger for around SG$7
- Drink during happy hour(s) – or more precisely, don’t drink during the couple of hours after the business day finishes when it’s not happy hour. Happy hours are predominantly 2-for-1, so beer is essentially half price
- Steer clear of hotel bars
BEER PUB Takumiya is a place you MUST go to.
It was my final night in Kyoto and I was looking for a good feed and better beer. Luckily I’d found mention of a great little gastropub about 10 minutes walk away.
