Story & Recommendation
A store with products that are fun to look at and fun to use! High quality Japanese stationery and accessories
The TOKYU HANDS KYOTO STORE is a home ware shop located on Shijo-Karasuma, Kyoto's main thoroughfare. TOKYU HANDS is a famous chain of nationwide shops. The KYOTO STORE carries stationery, cosmetics, everyday accessories, kitchen implements, travel items, and more. Everything is made to exacting Japanese standards, and browsing alone is a treat unto itself. Some of the products can also be tried in-store. There's a wide selection of cute keychains -- why not pick them up as a souvenir from Kyoto? The store is spacious and spans four floors. Items are split across sections alphabetized from A through F, with different genres in each. This way, you can head right to a designated section to find the type of goods you seek. Items are compactly organized here, making finding them a snap. This means you won't struggle to find what you need or get exhausted from traipsing around.
