Nishiki Food Market – Kyoto’s Kitchen (1)

When travelling I love to visit markets, particularly food markets, they reveal so much about cuisine and culture. Nishiki Market in Kyoto was a great example of this. It is a very long shopping street that is covered and is known as Kyoto’s Kitchen because of the hundreds of market stalls and restaurants that line it (and the surrounding side streets).

For many of the stalls I wasn’t even sure what a lot of the ingredients were, which makes it even more fascinating. Nishiki Food Market Kyoto Japan

Unsurprisinglythere was a lot of seafood. Nishiki Food Market Kyoto Japan

So many different types of food, as you move from one stall to another the smell of the market totally changes. Nishiki Food Market Kyoto Japan
