The third morning in Kyoto was spent in the shops, hunting for a few souvenirs... near Shijo-dori, in Teramachi and Shinkyogoku... Too many great shops... Of course, I had to buy a furoshiki (I think I bought three of them, actually). Then we found a wonderful bookstore with a nice coffee shop. (Yes, I bought a few books...) We also walked through Nishiki market where we saw again the most interesting looking food.
Afternoon, we headed North.
We had a very quick look at the Nishijin Textile Center, then we visited the much more fascinating Aizenkobo workshop.
Mr Utsuki kindly explained the natural indigo dyeing process he uses in his workshop, talked about his wife who designs clothing, and showed us many gorgeous textile pieces...
... then he took us outside to meet his son who was busy dyeing threads.
