  • We had a good time with a kind and courteous explanation. I am very satisfied to come back to get better many times how many times imagining the finish! The bride is also impressed.

  • We found the yosegi puzzle boxes for not so expensive, beautiful jewel boxes in the shape of plum and much cheaper than in the souvenir shops visited previously! There's something for every taste and every budget!

  • We bought two items from this centre (Japanese doll & embroidered scene framed) and had them posted home to Australia. Although the items were not cheap they were priced competitively and we knew that they were genuine. Both items arrived within a week of being posted, undamaged. They were both extremely well packed which protected them despite the poor handling by the Australia Post carrier. We were very pleased with both the service at Kyoto, the items and the delivery. Staff at Kyoto were also kind enough the write an explanation regarding the embroidery scene. I would recommend a visit, like most things resource your prices, but from our experience we would certainly recommend this centre. Also pay visit to the Blue Parrot Antique shop across the road, great range of antiques at reasonable prices.
  • General souvenir center. There is everything there that a tourist could want. Prices are high but easy to find.
