For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
I was surprised to see a foreign exchange area next to the information desk for foreign customers. They set a machine for exchanging foreign money so that customers can exchange conveniently. I always buy the bread from B1 floor bakery section. I feel that Daimaru is a place most locals feel as the home of all department stores in Kyoto.
I can access Daimaru through the underground passageway from the subway station. It is very convenient especially on rainy days. I love the full variations available in the B1 food area! The Kit Kat specialty shop is very interesting. While I always looked for things to buy for myself, however, I could choose for gifts for others in stores like the Kit Kat shop.
