The same day we went to Kitanotenmangu we hung around Kyoto until it got dark and went to the Hanatouro illumination display in Kyoto.  While walking the Hanatouro route up to the Kiyomizu Temple, this store caught mine and my friend’s eye and we had to go in.  Impulse buy!  Metal Factory handmakes their accessories and watches.  The watches are very cool, but I bought these asymmetrical earrings.  Love the sakura pattern on them.  It’s such a small detail, but that’s what convinced me to buy them.

Metal Factory has three locations, but the one we went to was v●c●e on the way up to Kiyomizu.  No easy directions, see their website for a map.
