The name, Mayday, is derived from a bar in Firenze. The owner, Satoshi worked there in his 20s and then opened his own bar in Kyoto.

An authentic bar with a great selection of Scotch, cigars, music; in addition to being very cozy and friendly. Draft beer and Japanese craft beer are also available. Don’t miss delicious dishes that go well with beer, and check out the irregular events such as concerts and various markets.

He speaks English very well; ask him for some tips about Kyoto.
