This is a great street to stroll if you want to see all the delicious foodstuffs Kyoto has to offer. Vendors offer fish, sweets, cookware... anything, you name it.

Here is a review:
Elegant collection of brand boutiques throughout the store Yet one might visit the ceramic collection the kimono area, with special attention to the small kimono shop along the far wall that has special new and recycled kimonos forget the big and tall men's area, unless you are a big small person overheated like all Japanese department stores visit the many Japanese and International specialty restaurants on the top floor also, for a real change of scene (noise, bustle) visit the 'bargain basement' area on the top floor, past the elevators, near the post office and ATMs
