Antique & Vintage Shopping in Teramachi
Intersecting with Nishiki Market, Teramachi-dori is home to many high-end antique stores and an increasing number of younger dealers selling more contemporary collectibles and hipster wares. You’ll find a mix of stores within Teramachi ranging from long-established and often fusty antique shops with extremely high prices manned by owners averse to smiling (that’s a warning not to necessarily expect a warm welcome), to newer enterprises operated by the Kyoto hipsters selling all things retro, vintage and unique.
As such, there are plenty of good stores and cafes popping-up in the area, enticing visitors into the pleasant streets of the area in search of that special souvenir or keepsake from their time in Japan. Well worth a wander through the area if you have the time and even if you’re just window shopping.
