Kyoto Food #2: 錦市場【Nishiki Market】

Awesome Food Market!!
錦市場【Nishiki Market】

In addition to restaurants and cafes, if you want to enjoy local food while traveling, you should definitely visit the “market”.

錦市場【Nishiki Market】is one of the famous and popular places for Lunch and Dinner!! Nishiki Market, known as the “Kyoto Kitchen”, is a grocery-centric shopping street that has been around since the Edo period, and there are currently about 130 shops in the area. It is crowded with customers.

The Nishiki Market has not only fresh vegetables and fish but also a lot of food to eat and walk. Among the many gourmet restaurants in Nishiki Market, I’ll carefully select the famous and popular specialties and those that make you feel like Kyoto and introduce them.


Here, you can get unbelievable long-shrimp tempura Skewer. I think this is the most delicious and interesting food in Nishiki Ichiba. In addition, you get the Japanese traditional BreakFast at cheap price.


Here, you can get interesting food like the octopus, squid with children, and even skewers of scallops! It looks a bit weird but quite delicious and photogenic items such as Nishiki!!!! And they kinda do a performance there!!



The most popular place in the Nishiki market is the “Uoriki” grilled fish shop! Speaking of Kyoto’s ingredients, 鱧【Conger Eel】. Many people gathered in search of such a gourmet. When you eat a bite of Grilled Conger eel, the sea bream is fluffy and the surface is crispy, so delicious!



There is a wide variety of Japanese pickles inside and outside!! “Uchida” was founded in 1940. We have been making pickles that are particular about the quality of the vegetables. An elegant taste that takes advantage of the taste of the ingredients has addicted  many people.

There are plenty of pickles using seasonal vegetables, and seasonal products are also available. One of the reasons why it is popular is that you can check with your tongue for a souvenir that you can agree with.

Nishiki Market has a strong impact on our memories of the journey. In addition to the above four stores, there are so many stores and restaurants and so on. So you’ll never bother you there!!
