  • 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.
  • Great place to pick up a range of souvenirs, remember to bring your passport so you can purchase tax free.
  • Here you can find swords, art prints, table runners, towels, jewelry, clothes and everything in between. I picked up a little yukata (robe) for my little one.
  • Nice selection but rather expensive even by Kyoto standards.
  • 我觉得,这两个二合一的商店有些官方了,很多旅游纪念品,但,惊艳的不多,都是比较典型的东西,有创意的不算多。
