Story & Recommendation
Let’s dive into the fascinating world of ukiyo-e at this ukiyo-e specialty store, Nishiharu, on Kyoto’s Teramachi Street!
Nishiharu is on the northern end of the Teramachi Kyogoku Shopping Street, and it is a store specializing in Edo and Meiji period ukiyo-e art. It is next door from the famous sukiyaki restaurant Mishima-tei. The stately looking historic store was founded almost 100 years ago. They sell all kinds of ukiyo-e art, from, the famous ones from classical masters like Hokusai and Hiroshige; to the more modern ones from artists like Kuniyoshi. The way they exhibit the ukiyo-e art makes this store almost look like a small art gallery! One of the most interesting parts of this shop is that you can look and choose the ukiyo-e you want while talking about ukiyo-e with the owner. They are fun to look at, and delightful to buy, so I’m sure you will find some you like!
