Keibunsha Books, Gifts and Gallery, Kyoto

Posted: 11 Feb 2010. Updated: 03 Jun 2020

After browsing Keibunsha's website, I was looking forward to visiting the store in person.

I was immediately trying to work out how much "extra" weight I could carry in my backpack, but came to the conclusion it was none. With that in mind, I came across this random package of Japanese papers that looked like they had been letter pressed.

I started flicking through the stamp section (like you do) and came across this beauty:

Both items fit nicely in my bag. I would definitely recommend Keibunsha Books to any creative tourist if you’re visiting Kyoto.

The shop is open everyday, from 10am - 10pm. Telephone: 075-711-5919.

I set off for Edogawabashi this morning in search for the amazing Toppan building, which is home to the Printing Museum of Tokyo.
