I have a favor to ask.
For many years Maki Shoten was the imported food lifeline for the expat community in Kyoto. We would certainly have survived the holidays without turkeys and mince meat and cheeses and honey and candy canes, but without the smile. Today, with large import shops in more convenient locations Maki is being forgotten. Thatâ€™s a shame.
Please remember Makiâ€™s. Stop in (after lunch at Didiâ€™s) and pick up a few things (best herb and spice selection I know of).
Help a Kyoto landmarkâ€¦for old times sake.
Thank you Charles!
Maki Shoten is a little shop brimful of goodies on the east side of Higashioji Dori, just south of the Eiden Mototanaka railway crossing. Among their copious food supplies they have a very impressive cereal selection and apparently, the cheapest cheese in Japan.
