25.June.2019 | SPOT

A new gift shop called Ginkakudou has opened after undergoing renovations in the area around Ginkaku-ji Temple in Sakyō, Kyoto.

 

“The Changing Seasons” is the concept of the newly-opened store which will offer lifestyle items to decorate visiting guests’ lives. The shop’s interior decor takes on a Japanese-modern aesthetic with carefully selected high-quality handmade products from all across Japan chosen to line the shelves.

 

The store also has its own eating space called Ginkakudou Eatery where they will serve coffee, pastries and fried snacks catered to the current season.

Ginkakudou’s interior design was conceived by Takuma Inoue, the creative director and an interior designer at y gion. It features grey as its base colour which is plastered with tiles, black mortar, tatami, sheet copper counter tops, oak wood, and various other materials to create a neutral, chic appearance. Its simple design serves to highlight the shop’s products, food and drinks.

 

Be sure to stop by the new Ginkakudou if you’re paying a visit to Ginkaku-ji Temple.
