Story & Recommendation
In Shinkyogoku Shopping Street you can find Kanzashi-ya Wargo that sells 20,000 kanzashi hair ornaments a month
Kanzashi are Japanese women’s hair ornaments. There is a shop in Shinkyogoku Shopping Street that sells kanzashi with a modern take, Wargo. The kanzashi that are sold at Wargo are designed so that they are easy to use every day so that they fit naturally into the modern lifestyle. It is exciting to look at all the different hair ornaments, but especially of note are the anime ones and the ones made in collaboration with traditional craft makers in Kyoto! Even for the kanzashi beginners, they have explanations about how and when to use them, so you can learn a lot here. The shop is easy to find: it is only a 3-minute walk from Hankyu Kawaramachi Station! I hope you will buy at least one kanzashi, for yourself, or for your friends or girlfriend.
