Our hotel, the Hotel Gracery Sanjo Kyoto, was located right along Teramachi Dori. This shopping street is very cool, with many shops and restaurants to visit. There are also a few famous temples you can visit along the Teramachi. It also connects with Nishiki Market,...More
I have gone here twice to see one shop specifically and have ended up doing a great deal of window-shopping. It is almost like visiting a flea market in Europe or the USA.
Again there is much to look over and be tempted to spend...More
Such an amazing shopping experience. My favourite shopping visit out of the whole trip. So many shops and all unique and all the staff I encountered were so lovely and friendly. I could spend days there, one day wouldn't be enough to see everything.
The Teramachi Street shops are outdoor, but covered from the elements. This makes it a great option with inclement weather. Additionally, virtually all the shops are of a Japanese origin, so the items are unique and local. If you're looking for unique items for souvenirs...More
Our Hotel was located in this area and it was the most convenient location one could ask for. The shops were good and there are plenty of stores selling all kinds of stuff.

Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall
windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.
