More and more men are traveling to Kyoto to experience what the city has to offer regarding women. I will also guide you on the best ways to meet girls in Kyoto during the day, the nightlife and the best way to meet them online.
First things first. Japanese girls like foreign men, popularly known as gaijin. This could be due to a variety of reason. Some love gaijin confidence, romance and looks even when you are considered a less than average in looks.
One thing that is unique about girls in Kyoto is that unlike most other Asian countries Japanese girls are not money oriented. Like I said, they could fall for you since you are different, want you to be a trophy to brag to their friends while others want “half” kids and toss you later.
Whichever the reason, you shouldn’t be afraid to try them out. After all, all these could happen in your home country too.
Now let’s get on where to meet cute girls in Kyoto and how they compare to Tokyo girls.
Kyoto shopping malls
This is the easiest and probably the best place to meet girls in Kyoto during the day. Kyoto girls love to shop and Kyoto have plenty of malls to quench this thirst.
One of the best areas in Kyoto to meet girls in malls is on Shijo Street.
Teramachi and Shin Kyogoku shopping arcade
Location: Kawaramachi intersection
The area is packed with a younger crowd meaning more girls.
Porta underground shopping
This is another solid option to find girls in Kyoto.
Other shopping areas include Nishiki market, about 100 meters north if Shijo street.
Girls in these places are very comfortable as they feel safe contrary to when walking in the streets. Start a little conversation with them, smile a lot and they might just get receptive.
If she gets freaked out, just back off to avoid a scene.
Meeting Kyoto girls in cafes
Kyoto girls love tea. They will sometime hang out in café, in groups or alone just to see new faces. If you get in any of these cafes, make an eye contact with one.
If she shows interest, offer to buy her a snack and get talking.
Yojiya café on 15 Sakyong
Dessert café on 604 Maruyamacho
Efish café on 798-1 Nishi Hashizume
Meet Kyoto girls in tourist attraction sites
Kyoto has a rich culture. There many are shrines and temples in the city. While you may be there to see the building, the locals go to these places to pray. Therefore, you could meet a girl, ask her to show you around and so on.
The three famous temples here are Fushimi Inari Taisha, Kinkakuji, and Kiyomizu–Dera.
Meeting beautiful girls in Tokyo during the night
If you want an even easier way to meet good girls in Tokyo, you might need to try it out during the night.
Sometimes you can pick a girl at these spots without talking after all these places are too loud to have a conversation anyway.
Meeting single women in Kyoto karaoke
Japanese girls love to sing, an explanation as to why karaoke is a staple of Japanese life. You don’t have to understand what the girls sing, or judge their voices but stay interested.
If you are good at singing or enjoys it there are English song selection so go get popular. Spot one of the cutest girls and sing a romantics song for her. Make sure you keep pointing and looking at her during the song.

Meeting hot girls in bars in Kyoto
If you would rather skip singing and stick to beer when looking for a girlfriend, worry not as Kyoto has plenty of pubs and bars. We can all agree that girls are more receptive when drunk.
As per we the gents, we see no walls between us and the girls, compared to when sober. Offer to buy drinks for the girl and maybe she will give you good company for week or years to come.

Fishbowl on Empire Building 7th F
Beer Komachi on 444 Hachikencho

Tip : Ask for Nomi-haudai. It cost $20 for 1 ½ hour and you will thank me.
Meeting girls in Kyoto nightclubs
If sitting in a bar seem tame for you, then you should try meeting girls in nightclubs. Luckily, Kyoto has a thriving nightlife, particularly around 3rd street and the Kamogawa River.
Some of the must visit clubs for easy hookups include
