Experience White
Through All the Senses

TEBACO draws on the inherent cultural sensibilities of Kyoto to discover richly stimulating ways of living today. Originating at the department store JR Kyoto Isetan, TEBACO now makes its first appearance in Gion. For a special limited period, GION TEBACO unfolds inside the two spaces of the ZEN Building, home to ZEN CAFE, Kou Koto, PONTE, and Kawamuro-sen, and nearby Ku Kagiya.

This year also marks the 60th anniversary of the treaty of friend-ship between Kyoto and Paris. In keeping with the concurrent Nuit Blanche Kyoto 2018, which is held to deepen relations be-tween the two cities, this Gion TEBACO event likewise explores the theme of blanche (white). Leading figures from the crafts and traditional culture long cultivated throughout the histories of Kyoto and Paris come together here and provide mutual inspira-tion for each other' s expressions of blanche. Ahead of the opening of the refurbished food floor at JR Kyoto Isetan in November and December, new arrivals on the floor also present their offerings. See, touch, smell, hear, taste... Two unique weeks that are a delight for all the senses!
