NISHIKI MARKET

Nishiki Market is a marketplace in downtown Kyoto, located on the east end of Nishikikōji Street, one block north and parallel to Shijō Street and west of Teramachi Street. Rich with history and tradition, the market is renowned as the place to obtain many of Kyoto's famous foods and goods. 


Nowadays, the market continues to be located on Nishikikōji Street, running for approximately 400m between Takakura Street and Teramachi Street, as a narrow shopping arcade paved with cobblestone. 


The market is often called “Kyoto’s kitchen” for its abundance of shops (about 130) offering fruits, vegetables, fish, dry foods and more.
