A sundries store that provides “truly lasting valuable goods”
ACTUS KYOTO is an interior decorating shop that sells furniture and decors with natural, beautiful design. The shop is the first and second floors of COCON KARASUMA. The first floor has groceries such as kitchen stuff, towels, fragrance and kid’s furniture. The second floor is a house brand section, including furniture, clothes and sundries. Inside is unified with mild colors of gray and white, which looks stylish and cozy. The shop sells not only house brand but also brand from home and abroad. Its concept is providing “truly lasting valuable goods”. As its concept, all you can see is high-quality convenience goods, for example, good to environment, carefully selected or made-in-Japan. Since sundries are things you spend a lot of time with, let the best groceries complete their long lifetime with you. Why not visit ACTUS to find products full of superior quality?

Ouur, the brand the editor in chief of KINFOLK produces
Ouur, the brand the editor in chief of KINFOLK produces
Ouur is one of brands ACTUS carries. Ouur was established thoroughly by the editor in chief of life style magazine KINGOLK which was founded in Portland, America. Its concept is the same as ACTUS, which is to provide simple and high-quality products. They create things loved by all generations for a long time with attachment. ACTUS is a main distributor of Ouur. ACTUS sympathized with their concept and began selling it in Japan. Materials and design are well-selected, and the features are simple but upmarket and beautiful items. There are also a lot of goods made with only made-in-Japan materials.

Enjoy fragrances of CULTI only bought in Japan
Enjoy fragrances of CULTI only bought in Japan
Italian brand CULTI offers room amenities to hot, comfortable SPA resorts or hotels. These fragrances are only sold at ACTUS within the country. The main items found in ACTUS are wood-stick-styled diffuser. As the natural scent is used for the diffuser, it smells gentle. It doesn’t smell bad even if you put some different perfumes in the same room. Each scene matches with each other. Among these fragrances, unique Japanese scene THE (Te) is one I recommend. It is blended with green tea and bergamot, which smells elegantly sweet and has Japanese-like mood. The Japan-limited bottle can be a souvenir too!
