Travel Japan – Kyoto Shopping

14 Jun

My last day in Kyoto was for shopping. I went to Teramachi-Dori St. where it intersects Marutamachi.

I walked south along Teramachi-Dori and saw wondrous places. I stopped at a tea shop for Matcha. I remember the owner from a previous trip. He has a gentleness of spirit.

I stopped at a Japanese Washi paper store. People were inside at a u shaped table,making collages out of saturated color papers. I bought a pad of them.

At a used kimono shop were these socks for children celebrating the year of the rabbit.

I went to Somushi’s, my favorite tea house, for my last time.

There was a yarn shop to tempt me. And Sou Sou, a clothing designer who modernizes traditional Japanese wear. By this time I was back to Nishiki Market. There is a knife store there that sells all types of prized Japanese knives.

I do love shopping, especially in Japan.
