A few more photos from Utsuwa Akando. I always preferred this kind of shops off the beaten path. The problem is that they are not on a tourist map, so either you have to do some research beforehand or get a hint from someone who knows the place already..
Here you can find anything from a small sake cup to a big plate. Can’t help but think about those who are desperately looking for something special to bring home, but not so much attracted to the stuff sold in the main sightseeing spots.
You definitely won’t stay in the shop for long before discovering something which will catch your eye!
Utsuwa Akando is located just near the exit n1 of Higashiyama subway station, you just have to take the first small street going to the north from it.
