Story & Recommendation
A Taste of Kyoto! Famous Japanese Pickles Loved Throughout the Country
The Gion branch of Nishiri, a shop famed for its tsukemono (pickles), is a short 6-minute walk from Yasaka Shrine. This traditional establishment is popular enough to be known by nearly all of the locals. In addition to standard pickles, the Gion shop is known for its collection of unique pickles that are found nowhere else in the world. The Japanese delight in the diverse lineup of products ranging from everyday vegetables pickled in soy sauce, salt or miso to more unique products that use ingredients like apples or cherry blossoms. At Nishiri, emphasizing the natural flavors of the vegetable is a top priority. For this reason, they the carefully manage the fields and seeds used to grow their pickling vegetables. Only the vegetables of superior quality are made into pickles and sold to customers. What’s more, they’ve put their efforts into producing delicious, healthy pickles, introducing vegetables pickled with healthy labelle bacteria. Don’t miss out on its beautifying effects! Another upside is that much of their product line can be carried at home at room temperature. Share a healthy bite with your friends and family!
