Kyoto’s Nishiki Market: a Feast for the Senses
The best way to become immersed in local Japanese life is, without doubt, to wander through the streets and breathe in the unique atmosphere of the food markets. There’s therefore nothing better than taking your senses on a voyage to Nishiki Market, the most traditional market in Kyoto.
Along a 400m-long shopping street, there are hundreds of shops and restaurants, all containing hidden culinary treasures. Amid the constant, booming cries of ‘irasshaimase‘, sellers greet potential buyers and visitors are instantly immersed in this labyrinth of stalls and displays, colours, flavours and aromas of soy milk doughnuts and marinated vegetables known as tsukemono. Nishiki Market has succeeded in preserving its authentic charm and is just as popular with the locals as it is with tourists. When you visit this culinary hub, you’re sure to leave with a full stomach and several shopping bags.
