Come visit Takashimaya Kyoto, the original department store where the Takashimaya brand initially began. One of Kyoto’s 2 best department stores, it’s sure to have a little something for everyone! Takashimaya definitely embodies the hallmarks of the Japanese department store. High quality products provided with that unique Japanese touch of elegance.
For the foodies, the Food Floor is a must see! Have a look at the legendary $100 US dollar melons while being overwhelmed by the sweets and other eats! To satisfy the shopping itch, all of the other floors have a broad range of goods. However, if you’re interested in traditional things, Floor 5 & 6 is where you will find kimono, legendary Aritsugu knives, lacquerware and possibly catch a glimpse of artisans showcasing their sublime skills and techniques.
