Trip to SOU・SOU Kyoto!

I just came back from a two week trip to Japan! I brought back a lot of goodies (including new products for the holiday season). I had a great time visiting the Japanese SOU・SOU stores, and I wanted to share my experience with all of you:

Here's the SOU・SOU flagship store in Kyoto (around the Kawaramachi-station area). There is a tabi-shoes store on the first floor, Le Coq Sportif bicycle store on the 2nd floor, and Kei-i (men's clothing) in the basement level. The whole building is full of fun SOU・SOU products and you can coordinate a whole outfit!
これが京都の阪急・河原町駅付近のSOU・SOU本店になります。1階が足袋店、2階がサイクリングウェアを取り扱うSOU・SOU Le Coq Sportif、地下に紳士服の傾衣があります。ビル全体にSOU・SOUの楽しい商品がいっぱいあふれていて、上から下まで全身SOU・SOUでコーディネートできてしまいます!

Here is Kei-i, SOU・SOU's men's clothing store. Check out the cool mural painted by the muralist Hideki Kimura

Kikoromo, SOU・SOU's women's clothing store is across the street from the main building.

Shitsurai, SOU・SOU tearoom and furniture/textile show room.

Here you can enjoy sweets inspired by SOU・SOU textiles (they change the design every month to represent seasonal changes) with a good cup of green tea. They are almost too beautiful to eat (I ate them all anyways, and it was DELICIOUS too)!

This is Ise Momen, the store dedicated to accessories (scarf, tenugui towel, etc.) made of Ise Cotton.

This is my favorite one: Warabegi, kids' clothing store. Many of the SOU・SOU adult
shoes and clothing come in mini sizes, so you can match with your kids too!

More pictures coming soon...
