Calligraphy Street

Last updated by nancy at 11/7/2016

An ideal souvenir shopping area is Calligraphy Street. It is located near South Gate inside the city wall towards the east. Walking down south street on the left side, continue to where the road splits in front of South Gate and turn left to find the entrance gate next to a small pagoda. Midway does a slight dog leg to the right. At the far end is the Forest of Steles. Sellers here usually offer you a very high price, so even if you bring them down by 50%, they will still make a big profit. This is a good place to buy calligraphy and folk art, specifically folk style block prints in a single shop which calls for about ¥50 if you can stand bargaining.
