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.
