Louis Vuitton on Shijo Street not far from Nishiki market.
No, I did not purchase any bag from the above brand.
I am looking for something local, something made in Japan.
Here's my catch..
As a tourist, if your purchase is more than 5400yen, you are entitled to claim back your 8% tax. Just bring your receipt, passport and your purchase to the Tax Refund counter, and you will get your cash back, even if you were paying using a credit card like I did. Hihi more cash for me to spend at the market.
Refund must be done on the same day of the purchase.
