Making Japanese traditional incense over 300 years
Originally Shoyeido was established in 1705 to manufacture Japanese traditional incense called “Koh” in Kyoto. In 2014, when they had the opportunity to set up a new store in Kyoto station, developed a new concept with its brand name of Shoyeido Kunkun. Even though they have a lot of history for over the past 300 years, they have kept creating a wide range of “Koh” items for various customers. Kunkun series that you can buy only at this store are the good souvenir, since these are offered 20 kinds of incenses today.
Although the store along the busy street, the time of inside the store goes slowly due to a fresh fragrance and friendly staff. It is worth stopping on the way.
