Story & Recommendation
Nishiki Market welcomes you to Kyoto with its yummy street food
Nishiki Market is a 390 meters long arcaded shopping street that runs parallel to Shijo-dori Street. At its narrowest the market is only 3.5 meters wide, and its widest 5 meters, so the market can feel a bit crowded at times. The market can easily be recognized from the colors of the arcade: green, red, and yellow. The light shining through the roof is said to make the foods and snacks sold in the market look more delicious. The shopping market has become one of the main tourist attractions of Kyoto, so you can hear Chinese, English, Spanish, and Korean all around you, but the market still retains a place in Kyoto’s heart –the market is even called the kitchen of Kyoto.
