A great experience
Like any other major travel destination, Kyoto has a strong shopping scene, at times literally flooded with tacky souvenirs, and fashion sold a bit more expensive than it should. Avoid the tourist traps around the center and other major attractions, and look for smaller, more laid back shops, where you will find more authentic products, including Nishijin textiles, Kyo pottery, gold-leaf work, umbrellas, paper lanterns and more. If you are looking for a mall, the Kyoto shopping scene will offer a rewarding experience.
