2nd Kyomono EXPO
-Online exhibition “2nd Kyomono EXPO” held! –
Known as the Thousand-Year Royal Castle, the ancient city of Kyoto has long prospered as the center of Japan and is home to many historic sites. Masterpieces nurtured during that long history still remain in Kyoto.
“Kyoto Mono Expo” is an online exhibition led by the Kyoto Specialty Products Cooperative Association to pass on the techniques and traditions of long-established stores that continue to survive to the future.
At the “Kyoto Expo” held for the first time in December 2021, many people learned about Kyoto’s specialty products. Due to its
popularity, we are holding the second edition.
The 2nd Kyomono EXPO special site has three categories: the
confectionery section, the food (other than confectionery) section, and the craft section. We will exhibit selected items such as timeless masterpieces that have been loved for many years, new products, and seasonal items unique to this season. Information on each company’s stores is also posted, so you can use it as a reference for
sightseeing in Kyoto in autumn.
It is an event where you can feel the “history” of tradition that has lasted for a thousand years, and the “present” of Kyoto, which has been elaborated without being content with history.
The Kyoto Specialty Products Cooperative hopes to enhance various contents centered on this “Kyoto Mono Expo” and to widely convey the appeal of Kyoto’s specialties to the Internet generation.
Also, on the official Instagram, we will introduce the
long-established gems that are on sale every day during the event. Please feel the wind of the ancient capital of Kyoto at the online exhibition “Kyomono EXPO”.
