Nishiki Market

Known as “Kyoto’s Kitchen”, the lively Nishiki Market is located on one of the main streets in downtown Kyoto. With over 120 specialty stores and restaurants, this is the best place for you to get a taste of famous Kyoto culinary delights!

What I love about Nishiki Market is that you get to sample a variety of fresh Kyoto specialties before you decide to buy it. So why not be adventurous? Try something you aren’t familiar with. You might just find something new you like to eat!

The food here is reasonably priced. For example, you can get chocolate croquettes for about 100 yen each and a soymilk donut for about 250 yen.

Besides eating, you can also purchase fine liquor, rice and tea. In addition, many stalls here sell traditional goods that are locally produced. I think this makes Nishiki Market the perfect place to buy souvenirs that are unique to Japan.

Since the shopping street is only 400 meters long, it’s better you take a walk from one end to the other, and then circle back again. This way, if you find something you want to buy but can’t decide, you can always return to the shop again later.

うまい!やすい!!楽しい!!!

ココを歩くだけで昼ご飯は終了!
京都のメインストリートの一本隣が、活気と人情が溢れる錦市場。
約400メートルの商店街に120店以上の専門店が軒を連ねる。

その魅力はなんと言っても、食べ歩き!
新鮮な食材や伝統的な食材が繊細に味付けされた京料理の数々を、存分に楽しめる。
味見ができるお店も多く、気に入ったものだけ買えば間違いはない。
でも、もしあまり馴染みの無い食べものを見つけたら、挑戦するのが旅の醍醐味!?
ひとり分を安価で売っているので、ちょっと不思議な食べものもみんなで食べれば怖くない!!

食べ歩き以外にも、上質な酒や米、お茶なども購入できる。
さらに、伝統的な生活用品など日本の生活風景が垣間見えるお店も多数。
なにより日本らしいお土産を見つけるのに、この市場は最適!!

★私イチオシ★
商店街はたった400メートルなので、一度端から端まで歩いてみて、食べたいものを決めて戻りながら買えば、
食べ過ぎず買い過ぎずに満喫できる!
