Are you interested in nice typical Kyoto souvenirs?





One of the nice memory after back home is millions of pictures from your travel, but another trully exciting memories are nice souvenirs!!




While I'm guiding the overseas tourists, I'm always asked any advice or recommend for their souvenir.


And when I most feeling happy is the moment we could find the exact one, what we're looking for as souvenir for their friends, families or on their own.






Here is some souvenirs I found most unique and attractive from the past experience.



Beautiful Yukata, feeling the atmosphere of Kyoto. Unlike official-use Kimono, easy to wear!
