Attention shoppers: Kotochika Kyoto opens today.
Kotochika is a bit of nirvana within Kyoto Station. In the newly renovated part of the underground shopping mall in the station near the subway Karasuma Line, the new Kotochika store is 630 square meters of heaven close to the north exit.
"Chika" alludes to "chikatetsu," or subway. There is a Shijo Kotochika at the Shijo Station within which are eight stores. At Karashume Station is a smaller version with two stores
Kyoto Station's Kotochika is the largest to date.
We try to avoid the Kyoto Station area when on bike, but there is ample parking in the area.
