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.
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.
I’d spent the morning doing a bit of sightseeing. First heading out to Fushimi Inari Taisha where I trudged up the mountain (I didn’t make it to the top) along with hoards of other people.
