    Default Trip to Japan

    Hi, i'm going to have a little vacancy to Japan
    I've read somewhere, but i cannot find it anymore that around 20 of each month in Kyoto, there is something like a market where miners sold their stone

    Can someone confirm there is something like that, or suggest me some stone selling shop in Kyoto

    Regards
    Luca

    Ciao Luca,

    parlo il giapponese? 京といしドットコム 【京都砥石販売同業組合】

    There is a "Toishi no hi" every year around October 14 when the hone sellers have a big expo/trade show, this year it's October 17th at the Miyako Messe.

    Otherwise, please see this blog post for info on Kyoto hone shops and locations: Eastern Smooth: I went to Kyoto, and now I'm back...With Lots Of Pics

    Please note: the shops are all targeted at professionals, so they are not open on weekends.
