Teradaya, Kyoto

(2.5/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Step into the 18th century at Teradaya, the site of bloody battles and pro-imperial loyalist plots. During the mid-19th century, samurai Sakamoto Ryoma (who went on to dramatically change the course of Japanese history) was a patron of this establishment, and began plotting to seize the imperial palace here. In this well-preserved tavern, you can examine artifacts relating to this famous historical figure, and also see the reconstructed room where he and his friend Miyoshi Shinzo made their dramatic stand against 20 Bakufu patrolmen. Keep your eye out for a sword cut in one of the wooden pillars, a 150-year-old scar from the fracas. Use our Kyoto itinerary maker to arrange your visit to Teradaya and other attractions in Kyoto.
