You can try your hand at handicraft Gashapon at the museum too. One try is 300 yen, and with it, you get a real handicraft from Kyoto. Like in the picture, you may get a Kyo-ware netsuke (like a cell phone strap), or you may get a mizuhiki hair ornament, but before rotating the lever, you don’t know what you’re getting! You get real handicrafts from Kyoto made by artisans for cheap, so these are also nice as souvenirs.
