Where to buy traditional crafts in Kyoto?
One of the best parts of buying a knife at Aritsugu is that they offer an engraving service, so you get to have your name engraved on the knife – make it truly one of a kind! Note that knives have to be put into checked baggage.
Kyoto is the perfect place to look for handmade things. The quality here is tested by history, as most of the shops have been doing their respective trade for hundreds of years.
