Seikosha is a small but venerable bookstore located in a remodeled old traditional house. The books are arranged in an unusual way reminiscent of an art space. Unlike most bookstores, it stocks mostly books that might be thought of as luxury items. The shop also has a coffee bar and regularly schedules workshops related to music or books.

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.
