Story & Recommendation
A modern secondhand shop connecting past and present in Kyoto’s Gion District
PASS THE BATON has a remarkably special atmosphere, even for Kyoto’s Gion District. Based on the concept of a “modern select secondhand shop,” it finds old items and materials that, for whatever reason, are no longer used and lying idle, and transforms them into new products to sell. They carry a wide range of items; including secondhand goods sourced from individual owners, and remade goods created in collaboration with businesses to give them new life. In addition to the Kyoto Gion location, it also has two locations in Tokyo, each with its own unique features, and there are many items you can only buy at the Gion location. The biggest distinguishing feature of PASS THE BATON is that it sells items with a photo portrait and profile of the previous owner, as well as the story surrounding the item. They value each item along with the memories and personalities of their former owners. From person to person and from past to present, PASS THE BATON connects a diverse range of memories and stories. In addition to the secondhand and remade goods, it also has a café and bar space called Tea and Sake room, ‘Tasuki’ / 「お茶と酒 たすき」 on the first floor, where you can enjoy tea. While visiting Gion, one of the most special places in Kyoto, why not experience an even more special time at PASS THE BATON?
