Story & Recommendation
A shop where you can find cute bags and cases
This shop is located along Shijo-dori (Shijo Street), the main street of Gion. Look for the aqua-colored sign with the cute font. Pouches and purses with clasps, known as Gamaguchi, are lined up by function and size. The wide variety of designs range from traditional Japanese patterns to dots and animal patterns. Many of the customers are women who enjoy selecting products while chatting with friends. We hope you find something you can use in your day-to-day life.
