  • Awesome antique handicrafts to browse! You can make your own Japanese handicrafts on the 2nd floor at an inexpensive course. Choose the craft you'd like to make, sign up for a class, and you can take it home with you when you're finished. The staff speaks English and they were really helpful!
  • Amazing store! I found all the gifts I was looking for in the one place as well as some woodblock prints for myself. Even got a cute yukata for ¥3,300! Had never seen them that cheap before. Also, tax free so bring your passport.
  • Loads of shopping across many floors. Good local crafts. I'm not massively into shopping so was finished in 15 minutes.
  • Good overview of the range of traditional Japanese crafts (spread across 2 buildings). Also has a bookstore.
  • Great range of tax-free Japanese products. Book shop. I didn't have the chance to try the craft workshops.

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
