New style of kawaii Kyoto souvenirs near Kiyomizu-dera Temple
COHAKU KAIRASHI, located in the middle of Gion area, offers a wide range of lovely goods. You would imagine a souvenir of Kyoto being very traditional looking, but this store has been aiming to manufacture products with a new factor. “Kairashi" means cute, or kawaii, in Kyoto dialect. Some “kawaii” goods that are laid out in the store have an original logo of winking maiko with a five-story pagoda and a phoenix. They are symbols of Kyoto that you could see while sightseeing in the city. This logo is on bags, charms, and other products. As their items are collaborated with many Japanese designers, all items that are offered in the store are made in Japan. This store is recommended for you to shop in and find kawaii Kyoto souvenirs for both you and your friends in memory of your Kyoto trip.
