For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
If you are near the Sanjo bridge (near Keihan Sanjo Station), check this store full of bamboo goods. I really like the coasters that they have. There are also chopsticks there and some of them are really thin. The staff told me that the thin ones are particular kind of chopsticks made to eat Kyoto cuisine.
Recommend !
Coasters / ¥800
These coasters are beautiful with small detailed designs and available for ¥800 each. .It would be a great idea to pick out different designs or buy few of the same ones to use at your own table. Just having some bamboo tableware easily brings out a natural theme into your interior design.
