Top Shopping Spots in Kyoto

Top Shopping Spots in Kyoto

Among Kyoto’s record-breaking 17 UNESCO World Heritage sites, you’ll also find some excellent shopping opportunities. Here are your options for top Kyoto shopping spots, whether you’re after quirky Japanese souvenirs, traditional handicrafts, or designer clothes.

Shijo-dori

The undisputed shopping hub of Kyoto is Shijo-dori, a bustling street that attracts both domestic and international tourists with its three department stores—where you can find both commercially popular and high-end brands—and several stores specializing in traditional Japanese kimonos.    

Nishiki Food Market

Though more focused on food, Nishiki Food Market (nicknamed the Kitchen of Kyoto) is a must-visit in Kyoto. As well as offering fresh-off-the-boat seafood and sushi, the market sells classic Japanese dishes and local produce such as roasted chestnuts, rice wine vinegar, and Japanese spirits.

Kyoto BAL

Travelers seeking a sophisticated shopping experience should look no further than the Kyoto BAL, which is famous for its stylish souvenirs and designer boutiques. To ensure a relaxed shopping experience, the mall is limited to only 33 stores, which cover international and Japanese brands.

Kyoto Handicraft Center

As its name implies, this 3-floor building is entirely dedicated to Kyoto’s vibrant art and craft scene. The local cooperative showcases the best work from local artisans and encourages visitors to try their hand at making a souvenir to take home. You also can step into observation studios to watch craftspeople at work.
