For those who want something very unique for gifts from Kyoto, this is the place to go.
Kyoto has many mysterious legends. And it has been believed that many specters are wondering around Kyoto City at night. And there are a few events related to “Yokai” (ghost in Japanese). One of them is the upcoming flea market called “Dai Mononokeichi”.
This event is organized by a group called Hyakuyobako at Kyoto Saga University of Arts. There will be 90 booths which will sell “specter” related products & crafts. Since X’mas is coming soon, if you are planning to visit Kyoto on December 20th, it is not a bad idea to visit this event to search for unique and possibly scary gifts. This event will be held at a venue called Ukyokan, Kyoto Saga University of Arts, from 10 – 17 on December 20th. It’s located in the Arashiyama area, so be sure to spare a whole day for sightseeing plus shopping here.
Or if you rather want to read the guidebook on your Kindle e-book reader or application, then get our Kyoto e-Guidebook on Amazon instead.
