souvenirs shops in Kyomizuzaka street
One of the main area's for souvenirs shopping is in Kyomizuzaka street on the way to/from the temples there. That is the most touristic place and maybe also most expensive.
Shinpukan: Modern mixes with tradition
Nice new shopping center that offers a variety of stores and restaurants. Not overly large and easy to get to. Put on shows several times a week.
To-ji Temple: Antiques
You can find antiques and new stuff at To-ji Markets. I even saw an old still-working grammaphone next to antique buddhist statues (which were worth thousands of dollars!).
To-ji Temple: Japanese Pottery
What to buy: In Kyoto, there is a lot of pottery with beautiful or simple patterns. A Japanese teapot and tea cups makes a lovely gift or souviner to bring home.
