Story & Recommendation
The second shop of Kyoto’s famous natural cosmetics brand Kyonoyuki opened on the first floor of the Kyoto Tower Sando, even stronger than before!
Kyonoyuki is a cosmetics brand born in Kyoto making Japanese cosmetics that has become popular even overseas. Kyonoyuki opened their second shop on the first floor of the Kyoto Tower Sando in April, 2017. They use 27 types of Japanese medical herbs to make their basic cosmetics. These cosmetics are so natural that they can be used by those with sensitive skin. Before, these cosmetics that are not only good for sensitive skin, but also are very effective, could be only be bought online or at their flagship shop near Nijo Castle. But now they can be bought here, near the entrance to Kyoto, Kyoto Station! They, of course, have the most famous products of Kyonoyuki like massage cream and recovery gel cream, but they also have sets that are good-value, and that you can only buy here. I hope you will go to the even more charming Kyonoyuki in the Kyoto Tower Sando. ▼ Kyoto Nijo Kyonoyuki http://sharing-kyoto.com/shop_Kyonoyuki

Kyonoyuki’s popular product: Massage cream
Kyonoyuki’s popular product: Massage cream / 120g:¥7,344
This massage cream is very popular in their Nijo shop, so of course, you can buy it at the Kyoto Tower Sando shop too! This cream removed any dead skin leaving the skin soft and white. The minty scent is refreshing and makes the skin tense. This cream contains only natural ingredients, and many people keep buying more of it. I want to recommend this product.

A set of honey-yuzu hand cream and lip balm / ¥3,775
One of the products you can only get at the Kyoto Tower Sando is this set of honey-yuzu hand cream and lip balm. The package too is very Kyoto-like with its cute design, and it makes for a great souvenir. I recommend this as a memento of your trip.

The second product limited to only the Kyoto Tower Sando shop is this tenugui hand towel! It has pictures of the famous sightseeing spots of Kyoto on it. The price is low so how about getting one as a memento?
How to buy

Cosmetics are used directly on the skin. You may have worries like, what if it doesn’t work for me, or what if it has no effect on me… but don’t worry! At Kyonoyuki, you can test all their products. Behind the showcase, you will find washbasins. It is really nice that you can try the products before you buy them.


When you try the products, the staff will gently tell you about how to use them.


Look at this! The hand on the left side of the picture is before, and the right one is after using the massage cream. It is easy to see the effect it had right away. I hope you will try some of their products too!  

- Shopping Tips -

This trial pack is also popular at Kyonoyuki! It has four basic cosmetic products (cleansing oil, natural soap, massage cream, and recovery gel cream) in mini sizes inside a drawstring bag. They are enough for one week of use, so this makes a great travel bag too. 


Many people start using Kyonoyuki’s products after fist trying this trial pack. I hope you will try it too! 


Special price only for readers of Sharing Kyoto!

For those who are at Kyonoyuki for the first time, if you say that you came to the shop after reading Sharing Kyoto, you can buy this trial pack for 1,080 yen! (Only one pack per person.)


Almost half-price! So don’t forget to say “Sharing Kyoto” at the shop!
