Enjoy the fusion of Kyoto culture and Milanese spirit at the new Valextra shop in Gion

Valextra has opened “Casa Valextra” in Gion, Kyoto, an interactive space that creates a ‘journey of discovery’ through mid-century Italian design icons, arts and crafts nurtured in Kyoto and contemporary objects.

What kind of things are there to experience? Find out what Casa Valextra has to offer

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.
