Story & Recommendation
A handicrafts market surrounded by the lush greenery of the Umekoji Park
The Umekoji Park handicraft market is held on the first Saturday of every month (except January and May) at the beautifully green Umekoji Park. Umekoji Park is only 10 minutes by bus from Kyoto Station, so it's super easy to get and a popular destination for both locals and travelers alike. About 300 stalls make up the market, which sees some 3,000 people visit it every month. Compared to the Hyakumanben handicraft market at the Chion-ji Temple, each stall is given enough space to let market-goers browse with ease. This makes the Umekoji market one of the most popular markets in Kyoto for families with kids. Every stall is unique and offers different wonderful delights. So, if you find yourself in Kyoto at the right time, then definitely give the Umekoji Park Handicraft Market a visit for yourself!
