The ad we saw in a tourist magazine promised 5 floors of kimonos, yukatas, etc, starting from 2500 yen. However there are only 2 racks of yukatas under 10000 yen (about $100US) and only some pale hideous elasticated things when we asked for the bargain...More

I visited this store to try to buy some gifts and thought the prices for yukatas seemed very reasonable on the web site. There is a sales lady who speaks very good English but I found her too overpowering. Initially, I just wanted to look...More

We went on the recommendation of the concierge at the Hyatt, given we particularly wanted a yukata (summer kimono) and it was already autumn. Mr Fujiwara was very patient in helping my husband and I try on different styles. Price ranges are clearly labelled from...More

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
tourists and local business travelers, making it a
competitive location for ever-new commercial
structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
