Kyoto has the shopping scene you hope to find in every World Heritage capital, with artisan specialty shops offering high-quality, locally crafted goods. The Japanese attention to detail makes shopping more fun if in the company of a plugged-in guide, as shopkeepers will take the time to artfully arrange samples and discuss the historical processes involved. Around the city there are enclaves of shops side by side, and quickly your thoughtfully-wrapped goods will pile up as one after the next offers an irresistible gem. There is a row of antique shops along Shinmonzen dori Furumonzen Dori, where an extensive selection of antiques and art prints can be found.
