If you’re into Japanese goods such as their beautiful bags, jewelry, cell phone accessories, children’s clothing, ironwork, fabric paper and other goods but don’t have the luxury of having a store nearby to purchase them, check out Kiteya. According to their site, “Kiteya” means “please visit us” or “please come and see us” in Kyoto’s dialect which is a gentle welcoming message often used in that region.
All goods are traditional craftwork with an integration of contemporary design from Kyoto. Prices range from less than $10.00 USD and up depending on the item you’re picking up. Their online store uses Paypal. If you happen to live in New York City, Kiteya offers classes at their store ranging from calligraphy to flower workshops and Japanese language lessons.
