The area
Address
Neighborhood: City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

After dinner at Chaox2 Dumpling, we walked about in the neighborhood and spotted this shop for its unique external decoration and building layout. Literally, the shop's name means Five Colors Beans. It is just next to Starbucks outlet. This family-owned shop was established in 1885.

We were attracted by the colorful and creative shapes of rice crackers. They are of different flavors as clearly indicated by labels on nicely organized glass casings or bamboo baskets. For local residents from Kyoto and Osaka, a brief stop at this shop for souvenirs is common. if you would like to sample some rice crackers home as souvenirs, ensure you select flavors you like.

We are glad to have found this reputable Funahashiya shop.
