Kyoto Sight: Nishiki Market

I love exploring markets. It’s always one of the must-do things for me when I go overseas. Immersing myself in a foreign country’s functional daily life makes me feel like one of their own.

Although Nishiki seems to be more of a tourist than local spot, it was still fun to explore, look around and stuff ourselves with the street food. Don’t eat breakfast before you come here, there is so much food to taste.

Nishiki Market spans across 2-3 streets probably.

One of the shops that is often mentioned online

No recollection of this means it must have been pretty normal

I remember this strawberry daifuku very clearly
