Kyoto Handicraft Center Tours

For handmade goods by local craftsmen in Kyoto, nothing beats the Kyoto Handicraft Center. This three-floor building is jam-packed with handicrafts, as the name implies, and souvenirs. The local cooperative showcases the best work from local artisans and encourages visitors to try their own hand at making a souvenir to take home. Visitors are also invited to step into observation studios where they can watch local artisans at work. 

The Kyoto Handicraft Center focuses on traditional Japanese goods. These include pottery, kimonos, jewelry, dolls, carvings, decorative fans, and more. It may be the best place in all of Kyoto to find handicraft goods of all varieties in one place. 

Practical Info

The Kyoto Handicraft Center is located within a 15-minute walk from Higashiyama Station on the subway. By bus, it is a three-minute walk from the Kumanojinja-mae bus stop. It is open every day from 10am to 6pm. The Kyoto Handicraft Center provides a traditional Japanese lunch (bento box) or a buffet-style lunch for groups with reservations.
