Very good selection of calligraphy brushes and calligraphy accessories. Staff were very kind and helpful, although unsurprisingly of course they weren't able to talk in depth in English about the items. Brushes were typically priced at 20 to 100s of USD depending on size.

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
