Kinukake-san presents the Kyoto World Heritage keepsake collection
We asked celebrity mascot Kinukake-san to curate the souvenirs and gifts that a traveler can only purchase at the World Heritage sites on Kinukake Road. All three temples – Kinkakuji, Ryoanji and Ninnaji – symbolize Kyoto to the world, and each offers a variety of unique gifts that capture the Kyoto experience, available only on the grounds. On this page, Kinukake-san shares his slightly quirky recommendations for the most thoughtful (yet reasonably priced) choices at each location.
