Konnyaku Shabon

“Wow, it’s so bouncy!” People strolling along Nishiki are often surprised by the colorful, foamy soaps and stop to have a touch of the massive lump of lather. The soaps are Konnyaku Shabonn (from the French word “savon” for soap) made from the starch of konjac yam. The products were created by focusing on the ceramides and scrubbing effects of konjac. It leaves the skin moist and smooth.

Since 1946, Ooshima has been popular as a store for everyday footwear for people working in Gion, Kiyamachi, and Ponto-cho. The first thing that catches the eye upon entering the store is the large number of geta (Japanese clogs) and zori (Japanese sandals) that are characteristic of Kyoto. Among them, takageta (high clogs) are purveyed to cooks. It is said that their original purpose was to allow cooks to adjust themselves to the height of cutting boards and cooking tables. Zori are sold wholesale to shrines and temples and stores selling priests’ robes.

"A stationery shop in Nishiki Market?" you may think. The family running it had been greengrocers since the Edo period (1603-1867), had opened a greengrocery store in Nishiki Market during WWII, and 30 years later, the store became a stationery shop because there was no one to take over the greengrocery business. "The slightly retro stationery is surprisingly popular," they say.
