Probably not at the Hotel You, I think. More worldly friends will stop off here for dinner in cool Mimasu-ya, reserving tables overlooking the water, or in the sublime French kaiseki restaurant, Misoguigawa , where a girl in kimono sits by your table throughout the meal, making delectable small talk in impeccable English. But I prefer to consume the entire city, a floating festival of delicacies. So, instead of spending three hours in a single restaurant, I continue to roam, nibbling at glimpses of the moon between the pachinko parlours, the click-clack of high-heels down an alleyway towards Kiyamachi, the way the couples still sit at decorous intervals along the riverbank, formal as courtiers, even if talking of that wild night in Waikiki.

Continue along Pontocho, past the theatre where geisha perform public dances in autumn and spring, and you will come out near the river again and Sanjo Bridge, where much of young Kyoto is hastening towards a night on the town, or waiting for dates near the temple commemorating 39 noblewomen and children executed along the riverbank. But the point of my walk — maybe 30 minutes long if you move very fast, an evening if you dawdle — is not to pick up highlights from a guidebook.
The lowlights are enough. In front of me is a Starbucks that allows anyone to enjoy the classic view across the bridge once reserved for well-heeled aesthetes; beside me is a Lawson where I can put together a sumptuous dinner. It was, in truth, the way I fell in love with the place for good.
I go over it now — in my head, with my feet — as I might go over the first billet-doux sent me by my Kyoto-born sweetheart. Only two monks were in residence: one a ghostly-pale character with a soft spot for the entertainment district nearby; the other a grizzled old guy whose passions stretched from motorbikes to the Hanshin Tigers baseball team and back again. Every day, I went to the tearoom two doors to the south, with its carp pond in the garden and its shelves of trophies commemorating giant fish within.
Is the Japan he so cherished gone now? Living here, I never dreamed that this rather obscure and unvisited area would soon become one of the most glittery and chic in all Kyoto. All of this makes the area much more elaborate and glamorous than it used to be. But none of it spoils — it only amplifies — what held me on arrival. And the fact that the area is just a little way off the main drag reminds you that the margins are where the deepest interest lies. In Kyoto, the main thing to note is that every simple distinction — between high and low, sacred and profane, even old and new — is something of a figment of the imagination.
