Nishiki market

Just off from Teramachi shopping street arcade is Nishiki Market.

A place full of wonderful fresh ingredients. If you can’t stand seeing the fresh fish then go for the gorgeous vegetables it’s worth seeing what’s on offer.

It can get very crowded here and is hard to move sometimes as the long shopping street is quite narrow. Saying that the lively atmosphere can add to the experience of the visit.

Shop after shop of seasonal produce from Pickles to tea from knives to  yuba. In a place that is centuries old. A place where locals and tourist mix together.

I think if your interested in cooking it’s a must visit !

It is good to get there early if you can . Like a lot of places it has a different atmosphere at different times of the day.

Early morning just setting up stalls.
