Gifts. A little beyond Hachimangu is Khaju Art Space (57-1 Nikaido, 0467-23-3663), the studio of textile artist Makiko Tanaka and related artists. Set in a traditional Japanese dwelling, Khaju is a beehive of activity, with workshops, classes, performance events, and exhibits. It's a great place to find reasonably-priced hand-made gifts by local artists, including scarves, clothing, pottery, and many other things.
On Komachi-dori two shops worth visiting are Shato ( tel 22-2601) for all varieties of Japanese paper (washi), and Yamago for bamboo products. 'Fine Bamboo', at Yuigahama 2-9-60, has exactly that. Chikara-Mochi (Sakanoshita 18-18, tel 22-0513, in a classic old wooden shop building) has various desserts. Especially good is the shop's namesake dessert, chikara-mochi, a pun with the double meaning of 'giving strength' and the name of the sweet paste from which it is made.
Meri Hari, a shop at Yukinoshita 3-1-27 (tel 0467-24-0884) near Hachimangu, takes its name from a Japanese expression meaning to give an accent to one's life by doing something different. Befitting its name, Chiyoko Mizuno's shop has ceramics, graphics, olive oil, baskets, handbags, lacquer ware, furniture, all individually selected from her travels around Japan and overseas.
