  • After we traveled across from Gion Shijo Ohashi, Kyoto's Ponto-Cho and Miyagawa-Cho Street, came to Shin-kyogoku Street. This shopping district was covered arcade in the Mall adjacent to the temple is lined with temple near. Food and beverage outlets such as shopping there are many children, many souvenir shops, capital gifts enjoyed looking at the shop.

  • In Kyoto as elsewhere the malls abound however this gallery as the other deserves your visit, you'll find everything and shelter from the weather or the Sun. Visit this gallery and the adjacent ones care you about 2 h.

  • Beautiful store (little fellow and two tiers), completely covered with prints of various age (even) and various price, and books (magnificent). If you're kinda bibliophiles or just kinda curious is a not to be missed. The owner doesn't speak much English but is willing, does not show any flexibility on prices (of course we in Japan) and credit cards are accepted. Definitely recommend.
