旧京都中央郵便局（現中京郵便局）は三条通にあります。赤レンガ造りのどっしりとした重厚感を感じる建物です。 こちらの郵便局は1902年（明治35年）に建設されました。周囲の外壁は当時のまま残し、内部は建て替えられているそうです。 建物のそばに説明板がありました。 more »The former Kyoto Central Post Office (now Chukyo Post Office) is located on Sanjo Dori. It is the building which feels a heavy feeling that was made of red brick. This post office was built in 1902 (Meiji 35). The surrounding exterior walls are left as they were at the time, and the interior is being rebuilt. There was an explanation board near the building.
Nice English speaking staff. Good service. You can buy stamps.
Did not realize it was a National holiday (vernal equinox). The post office near my hostel closed, and without information on opening hours specified in Google Map, I just tried my luck here :) Staff was efficient and polite to foreigners, and they understood English. One word of caution in posting packages overseas. Just stating "cosmetics" in the description of goods won't do. You need to specify the details, e.g. Face cream x2, Lip balm x3. I was asked to remove sunscreen and hair dye from my package, as they were prohibited items.
