“ Takashimaya department store. The founder started his business of cotton textile and second hand kimono in Kyoto,1831. His talent and his successors made a small shop that huge department store company that conquered Japanese retail business. The shopping bag of the "Takashimaya red Rose" has been a proof of wealth for people ( at least Kyoto people.) Not reasonable, but their selection is very trustworthy.”

Place of Worship
“Mibu-dera was founded in 991 and belongs to the Risshū school. It houses tombs of pro-shogunate Shinsen-gumi members, who fought bloody street battles resisting the forces that succeeded in restoring the emperor in 1868. Except for an unusual stupa covered in Jizō statues, the temple is of limited interest. It is, however, definitely worth visiting during Mibu kyōgen (comic drama) performances in late April, or the Setsubun celebrations in early February.”
