3 gift shops to visit when you tour Kyoto

When you go on your Japan vacation, you may want to pick up some souvenirs for your loved ones. In this post, we’ll take a look at a few of the best gift shops in Kyoto:

Kakefuda - It’s always nice to bring home traditional items for your friends and family, so why not pick up some Furoshiki from Kakefuda when you tour Kyoto? These gorgeous, eco-friendly wrapping cloths are made out of a variety of fabrics including silk, rayon, nylon and cotton. By folding and knotting Furoshiki in specific ways, they can be used to carry clothes, groceries and even babies.

Takezasado – “This studio shop combines modern designs with traditional Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock printing techniques to create a wide range of products from fans to book jackets to delicate handkerchiefs,” states RocketNews24, an online resource for Asian news. “In business for over a century, they also hold regular woodblock-making workshops.”

Uragu - If you’re looking for any kind of specialty paper products — stationery, scrolls, note pads, etc. — to take home with you, Uragu has just what you need. This little shop can be hard to find, as it’s located in a narrow alleyway, but once you see the beautiful, high-quality items it carries, you’ll be glad you found it.
