  • I’ve been here many times and brought students here for souvenir shopping when I led study tours. It has changed! The great selection they had is gone and it’s now a boutique tourist shop. What happened to the great collection of woodblock prints? The strange and bizarre things young people love to buy? The selection of books was the only thing that improved from the old center.
  • Good place to find some souvenirs that are in good taste and quality . Something different that you can usually find near temples and shrines. The place have two quite big building with items sorted by theme on each floor. There is also thrust information , free WiFi and people are really nice and helpful.
  • Not bad and a good selection of Kimono / Yakuta but nothing special from a shopping point of view. We didn't do any of the workshops though so they could be good. It's near Heian shrine so could pop there after.
  • 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!
  • Quality authentic Japanese crafts and souvenirs at reasonable prices. They will fill out forms so you can purchase tax free if you are foreign visitor.
