Nishiki Market (錦市場)

Shopping Street

A shopping arcade filled with shops extending from Nishiki Tenman-gu Shrine one block north of Shijo Street to Karasuma-dori Avenue. Some 400 years have passed since the area was granted the title of fish wholesaler by the Edo shogunate government in 1615, and the arcade is also known as the “Kitchen of Kyoto.” Roughly 390 meters long, a variety of restaurants, cafes, and knickknack shops, and grocery stores line the arcade selling seasonal fresh fish and Kyoto vegetables, Kyoto pickles, tsukudani foods preserved in soy sauce, dried goods, tofu, cookware, and tableware.

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
