Morita Washi

Morita Washi is known in the whole neighbourhood for its signature 'washi' (Japanese handmade paper made using fibres from the inner bark of the gampi tree, the mitsumata shrub, or the paper mulberry bush). It provides a large variety of washi, from rough country style paper to intricately patterned paper perfect for framing.


Shopping in Kyōto is a unique experience: huge department stores harmoniously blend with small, historic family-run stores. From high fashion to vintage stores, the city has something for all tastes and budgets.
