kyoto is a center of traditional crafts in this area (kansai, western japan). it's great that people in general love these crafts, and also interesting that craft traditions continue for hundreds of years, but remain relevate to contempoary life--often in the form of traditional fabric/patterns used for bags, ect. this store is interesting--they make all sorts of figures from silk cocoons.
