A quaint converted tea house in Gion

Casa Valextra was created in a renovated former two-storey tea house on Hanami-dori in Gion, Kyoto.

Passing through the entrance curtain, you will find yourself immersed in the harmony of the ancient capital and the brand’s sensibility of engineering beauty.

As the ‘crossroads’ between Kyoto, at the forefront of crafts that have preserved tradition and innovation for over 1000 years, and Milan, where Valextra has its roots and has been creating famous architectural and design icons since the 20th century, the new Kyoto Boutique conveys to the guests the fusion of tradition and culture.
