Shopping in Kyoto is a lot like the city itself, focused on heritage and history yet still embracing the current trends. While exploring the charms of Kyoto, you are almost guaranteed to stumble upon quaint boutiques selling anything from arts and crafts, fabrics, clothing, and souvenirs. 

    For modern fashion, head to the central thoroughfare of Shijo Dori. Here, you’ll find a great variety of department stores and shopping malls as well as a bustling ‘big city’ vibe.
