Welcome to Maeda Stationery in Kyoto
It’s a very tiny traditional Japanese stationery shop located in the area called Umekoji which is not too far from the Umekoji-Kyoto-Nishi Station of JR line. But you can also walk to the Kyoto station it should take about 20 minutes. Anyway, we are very close to the Kyoto Aquarium and Kyoto Railway Museum.
There is a lot of construction work going on around the shop. Eventually, we will find four big hotels will be standing sometime soon. But we still surrounded by the old fashioned neighbourhood as we have regular customers who are pupils of the primary school close by and acquainted aunties in the area.
A part of our family used to live in New Zealand. We are happy to meet people from overseas and have a chat about your exploring story in Japan.
Just drop yourself off when you see our shop on the street!
We sell not only traditional Japanese stationery but also some unique Japanese souvenirs. But the most unique part of our shop is that we sell fresh tomatoes occasionally and other vegetables or fruits sometimes. It’s quite popular for our neighbours.
We are on the corner of Shichijo-Dori street and Mibugawa-Dori Street, next to the convenience store “Family Mart”.
Hope you have a wonderful trip!
