  • We were disappointed by this market, located inside a gallery, and which is not of great interest. Specialties we have tasted were not good. We left with the impression that it was a bit of a "tourist trap"

  • Great Nishiki food market, of anything and everything, the smells displace each other. Delicious things tasted. often also free samples. But just look around is all worth it. Unfortunately no (public) toilet. But do you like cooking or food, this is definitely a must

  • When you don't have much time to stay in Kyoto a few places to pick up one of the Nishiki market that we wish to put it just like I would recommend. When you buy a boat and go for a variety of fun to eat. This winter, the interim report had gotten in the market was the best takoyaki. In some cases, have been on the second floor of the Mall coffee huts and the atmosphere is somewhat classic and rest quietly while overlooking the bustling markets way up. Prices aren't cheap. By the way, I like the old forge knife or kitchen tools to make selling your House don't miss out ~
