Two floors with a lot of souvenirs or useful items. You can attend different workshops, and learn how to do Japanese handicraft. Or you can have a meal later on inside the building. Great for kids.

KongHans1 san, Thank you very much for your wonderful review regarding the services we offer at Kyoto Handicraft Center. Currently we have minimized the number of staff members to prevent the spread of coronavirus, hence we will not be able to give the usual services you have mentioned in your review, unfortunately. (The workshops will be closed and the restaurant will be open only for short hours until March 31st 2020, as of right now.) However we have been patiently waiting and hoping to give the enjoyable experiences again soon. We hope to see you again when we do! Best regards, Kyoto Handicraft Center

Dear AraleMelbourne san, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. We were very happy to hear your opinion. About 8 years ago, it was just after big earthquake hit Japan so it was very difficult to open whole floor for us. Now we are getting better and make effort to be a pleasant store for all tourist. Your review really encourage us so thank you very much again! For joining craft making workshop, we do accept on the day but advanced reservation is recommended since we sometime have group reservation. Hope your craft work will be good memories of Kyoto trip! We look forward to meeting you again. Sincerely yours, Kyoto Handicraft Center

I really enjoyed stopping by this Center. It is a little like a museum gift shop. I liked the information about how some of the crafts are made. I bought a beautiful doll and it was shipped to my house in the US. It arrived in perfect condition on the day after I arrived

This shop is beautifully laid out with plenty of high quality items. I bought several things here for myself and others. I visited on my own (caught the bus) and at no time felt pressured to buy. They had a range of yukatas and I bought one for the equivalent of A$60 so very
