Gift, Souvenir, Traditional crafts/Kyoto
Japanese paper 'Washi' is a traditional Japanese craft registered as an intangible cultural heritage. There are various types of Japanese paper developed differently in various parts of Japan. The Kyoto Handicraft Center sells "Yuzen paper" that are beautifully dyed like the yuzen-zome of kimono, and "Kyo-Karakami" that is like a type of woodblock print. We also recommend small items made of Japanese paper such as greeting cards, writing pads, earrings and hair accessories. .
