Fun coin purses that make the perfect souvenirs
Pocchiri Kyoto Tower Sando Store

Gamaguchi purses from 1,110 yen. Clutches and ruck sacks are also available.
The shops on the 1st floor of Kyoto Tower open until 9 pm are ideal for after-dinner shopping. When you’re there, don’t miss Pocchiri, which specializes in gamaguchi clasped purses and clutches. The word gamaguchi literally means “toad’s mouth”, and these purses are a favorite among Japanese people for the way they resemble a toad’s mouth when they pop open. The products feature many fun, stylish Japanese designs such as cherry blossoms and Mt. Fuji, and even an exclusive Kyoto Tower design. Pocchiri’s products are made in Kyoto so you know they’re beautifully crafted.
