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. Has some beautiful small temples located in the area

Teramachi is a covered street, the same as Nishiki but it is wider and therefore feels a lot less crowded, even though there was lots of people. There are galleries, food, clothes, whatever you want it is here. I really liked this area - worth...More

I love this place. Teramachi Dori (Street) actually runs for miles north south in Kyoto, but the main shopping street is between Shijo and Sanjo Dori. This part is covered, and makes a relatively cool and dry place for exploring the many shopping delights of...More

Most of the shops give you branded items in this street. All types of products available including the kimonos. If you are a brand freak, then this is the place for you to go.

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
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
