If you want to buy good quality clothes made in Japan, I recommend URBAN RESEARCH KYOTO!
The concept of URBAN RESEARCH is “Unique clothes for urban people” and they say they are not only offering clothes but a life style, and they choose and “edit” their lineup to fit this concept. URBAN RESEARCH is a “select shop,” a Japanese term meaning a clothing store that carries clothes from different, often imported, brands. Customers of all ages shop at this store, but it’s especially popular among men and women in their twenties.
The store looks really fashionable with Japanese brands, designer brands, and refined bags and other items on display. They sell clothing from casual things you can use daily to more dressy pieces, so you can put together your whole wardrobe with clothes from URBAN RESEARCH.
Among URBAN RESEARCH stores, their Kyoto store not only sells men’s and women’s clothes but they also have things that can only be found in Kyoto on the basement floor. All of the products born from the collaboration project “JAPAN MADE PROJECT” between URBAN RESEARCH and traditional Japanese industries from all over Japan are unique. The basement with its unique charm is a place I recommend you see at least once if you visit the Kyoto store.
URBAN RESEARCH KYOTO has a different atmosphere from other URBAN RESEARCH stores, and they sell many items that can only be bought in Kyoto. The store is inside the Teramachi Shopping arcade, so access is easy. I hope you’ll enjoy shopping at URBAN RESEARCH KYOTO!
