the kind appearance

The Kind, a new food store in Gojo, offers a comfortable habit of buying only what you want in quantities.

August 11, 2023 open

Yuka Tominami opened a food store selling food by weight in a renovated space where her great-grandfather's printing shop had been established. Her love of travel led her to open the store with the desire to establish the package-free culture she had seen in many countries in Kyoto. Everything you see, from nuts, pasta, olive oil, and crunchy vegetable vegetables, are all items that she can wholeheartedly attest are "delicious! Freshly pressed peanut butter and dried fruits that can be tasted make great gifts.
