Tsujikura Lantern and Umbrella Shop, Kyoto

Wherever you walk in old Kyoto you find these beautiful lanterns outside the restaurants and shops and sometimes if you are lucky you see a geisha with a traditional Japanese umbrella in her hand, The manufacturer Tsujikura has been in business since 1590 and now the 18th generation is taking care of the production. So if you want to bring home one of these umbrellas or lanterns you should visit their store in central Kyoto next to the Takashimaya department store. It is located on the 7th floor of a modern dark gray building. They come in different prices and some at really good value. The ladies working there are so lovely too!
