Reviewed:2017/03/01 Nice boutique book shop
This bookshop has a very cute façade. I came here specifically to check out the non-book souvenirs but there werent much at all and are all on the pricey end.

Went on to check out their collection...

After searching in vain online for an interesting piece of contemporary Japanese music I had heard in a cafe, I got some advice to check out Keibunsha. Sure enough, I found the CD I was looking for...

本屋さんではありますが、驚くのはその品揃えです。芸術や建築、もちろん文学までジャンル別に分かれていますが、他の書店では見ることがないこだわりの書籍ばかり。はまり込むと、半日はあっという間に過ぎてしまうほど。

生活雑貨も、思わずテニしてしまうほどの良品であふれています。特にキッチン&ダイニンググッズは秀逸です。

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
