What inspired us to open pubs in Kyoto, the cultural heart of Japan?
The answer is simply a love for pubs. Man in the Moon was founded by a Kyoto native with a passion for travel, English conversation, and tasty beverages. "Mr. Moon" spent his life working in Japan's beer industry. When he wasn't working he was off to Europe with his lovely wife to see the sights and enjoy a pint at the local pub. He wished to bring this experience home to Kyoto for others to enjoy. In 2008 he did just that!
It's hard to believe that it's already 2018 and we have opened four beautiful pubs in Kyoto and our flagship Tokyo pub in Shinbashi! We have cherished the wonderful memories created during this exciting journey. We hope that you will be in the good times and happy memories to come!
