Kyoto shopping

Shopping is Japan's national sport, and while Tokyo is the place to go for cutting-edge fashion, Kyoto is a treasure chest of traditional Japanese arts and crafts, and wares devoted to the complementary arts of tea and cuisine. Most of your browsing and shopping can be done on foot, organized around areas like Shinmonzen, the antiques street in the Gion district; the Nishiki food market; Teramachi, a pedestrian street in the heart of the city; and the bustling shopping area around the intersection of Shijo and Kawaramachi streets.
