Nothing special compared to other malls in Japan but I did buy great stationary and other things for presents. At the second hand kimono store I bought great kimonos very cheap as well as gloves for presents. I highly recommend it.

This mall is next to Kyoto station and on the way to our Airbnb. Not a major mall but there is a Don Quijote on the second level. This is like a huge low cost neighbourhood grocery stall, tax free. We purchased some souvenirs there.

A great shopping centre for locals, inexpensive purchases. I had looked everywhere in Tokyo for Regetta Canoes and found a concession here. Place to eat as well, worth a stop, over the road from the station.

Kyoto Avanti is your average, run of the mill type of mall. I wouldn`t advise going out of your way for a visit, but it`s location close to Kyoto Station makes it very accessible. There`s also a food court with a decent variety of restaurants...More

You can find all kinds of restaurants in the basement and plenty of shopping but going into the Don Quixote store is unbelievable. Sensory overload with how big & loud with all the action going on was a bizarre shopping experience to say the least!

There are a lot of shops for your shopping spree. Though it is ideal for youngsters; adults are able to do shopping too. I managed to buy a furry scarf to wear over my neck when I go out in the open. Yes, Gu and...More

I love Avanti! Though it's a place for youngsters (you can see a lot of shops that are for youngsters) but there are also shops for adult to do some shopping. Gu and Daiso are there too! It's a great place to look at what...More

Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi
Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist
attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens,
temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for
strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine
itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the
mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers,
picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the
