Iconic camera maker Leica recently offered a glimpse into its Kyoto, Japan flagship store, located on Hanamikoji street in the Gion district.

Occupying a renovated 100-year-old, two-story townhouse, this store keeps much of the original structure, as well as many of its wooden beams and pillars. Sharing a similar passion for handmade designs, Leica also showcases the painstaking craftsmanship that went into some of the Kyoto store's fine furnishings.
