Story & Recommendation
Find your favorite Kyoto souvenirs!
Established in 1887, Kimura-oushido has been loved by the local people in Japan. There are two shops in Kyoto and both of them are in the very convenient locations: one is in Shopping Mall Kyoto Porta and the another shop is in front of Kiyomiuzu Temple. This time we have visited the shop in Shopping Mall Kyoto Porta and we were amazed by the various kinds of souvenir selections specialized in Kyoto. You may find the one you are looking for in this shop! Most of their products are a handy size, so it is easy to bring them to your hotel.
Kokeshi / ￥1,404 ～
Kokeshi is a wooden doll with a spherical head and a cylindrical body that is originally a folkcraft product of the Tohoku region (around Miyagi prefecture in Japan). Kokeshi dolls that this shop sells are very pretty and small size, so it is a good souvenir for anyone in your country! You can put in your room as a remembrance of your Japan trip.
Cats' figures / ￥1,080 ～
Too bad that you cannot see the cat's waiving its paw! These are limited products only in Kyoto and say “Love and Peace” and “Out your hands up”. There are other types of cat crafts such as the one which tail is moving automatically using solar energy. They are all at a reasonable price and a handy size, so they are good choices for souvenir!
