Nishiki Market

Nishiki Market, Higashiuoyacho, Nakagyo Ward, Kyoto, Japan

A must-visit in Kyoto, Nishiki Market is a narrow, five-block-long shopping street lined by more than 100 shops and restaurants. Known as “Kyoto's Kitchen,” this lively retail market specializes in all things culinary, including fresh seafood, produce, knives and cookware, and it is a great place to find seasonal foods and Kyoto specialties like Japanese sweets, pickles, dried seafood and sushi. Don’t miss Aritsugu, for high-quality knives.
