The highlight of Kyoto’s street of antique stores is this enormous six-room townhouse, crammed with every conceivable kind of antique, from soy sauce dispensers to full samurai regalia. Everything you see is for sale, though visible price tags are scarce. Even if you don’t have the budget to splurge on historic artefacts, this is a wonderful store to wander around.
