Our Comments
Popular in Kyoto
Must-visit shops and spots for all first time tourists to Kyoto.
Highly Recommended
Top shops and spots loved by our editors and highly recommended to be listed on your itinerary.
Well Worth a Visit
Less known but widely loved by both tourists and locals. Recommended if your schedule permits.
Good for Fans
Hideaway shops and spots of worthwhile destination. Recommended if you are keen on these genres.
For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
Despite that I am a letterpress printing lover, it is the first time for me to see the machine.
It was far huger and also older than I expected. The owner of the shop has a dream that he would like to spread the value of letterpress printing with graphic design to people as much as possible. If you get sympathized with it like me, I definitely would like you to visit and see!
Recommend !
Mamefumi / ¥300 (10 papers)
Just right sized memo pad is really useful for a short message.
You can select 10 pieces from several colors as you like.
These make a good souvenir.
Recommend !
Calender / ¥1,600
You can feel roughness texture of paper by your hand clearly.
Printed with the name of month by original Japanese character that is based on Chinese calendar.
Even if you don’t understand the meaning, it doesn’t matter! Try to put it on a wall in your room. Looks very nice as an interior.
