    Kyoto Kyukyodo

    A small envelope bringing the heart of the sender to that special person

    Originally, Kyukyodo was opened as a pharmacy in front of Honno-ji Temple on Teramachi Street in 1663.  Today they are favored by people of all ages as a specialty shop offering incense and Japanese stationery.  One of the most popular items is cute, large and small envelopes using traditional Japanese washi paper.  A wide range of designs and forms will appeal to everyone’s taste.  Especially, the small envelopes feature a variety of Japanese motifs, from traditional patterns to modern drawings of flowers, animals and seasonal elements.
