  • Place with good quality Japanese stuff. Quite pricey though. The shop itself is not really special. Better than most souvenir shops, though not a must-see.  more »

  • Clearly the kind of tourists trap that tour companies bring bus loads of people to. But it had everything we were looking for. Lots of selection for souvenirs. A craft area that my daughter really enjoyed. And even a halfway decent lunch place.
  • Service staff are well versed in English. The prices, being this is a place where a lot of tourists go, are above average. The items are high quality to compensate though.
  • I really enjoyed the handicraft centre, despite a few other reviews, I found it to have a good range of local products available. Sure, it's got some mass-produced touristy things, but it also stocks quality local wares at pretty competitive prices. The highlights are definitely their woodblock print gallery (prices average 10,000 yen) and their surprisingly large selection of cast iron teapots and kettles (5,000 yen upwards). Also one of the best places to purchase yukata and kimono in Kyoto if you're looking for different prints - cheaper than traditional tourist outlets. Staff are lovely, shop is very clean and large and often quiet. If you're looking for some quality souvenirs or local wares and don't want to hunt all over the city, this is well worth a glance.
  • Best place in Kyoto to find authentic high quality affordable Yukatas, kimonos and all things japanese! Must visit!
  • It was so-so. If you only have 1 day in Kyoto then yes this would have everything you need for gifts but it's a bit pricey.
