Takesada Shoten Shop Front

Takesada Shoten, a bamboo workshop located in Kyoto Arashiyama with a remarkable 140-year history, was refurbished with a new workshop’s facade and entrance. With a careful approach that preserves the workshop’s heritage, the renewed shop front aims to welcome both longstanding patrons and new customers. Through this local intervention, the traditional essence harmoniously blends with a fresh perspective, ensuring that Takesada Shoten remains a beacon of craftsmanship and cultural significance in Kyoto.
