Story & Recommendation
Crisp, Refreshing Japanese Pickles Inside "Kyoto’s Kitchen"
If you're not familiar with how pickles, or tsukemono, are eaten in Japan, then this is a great shop for getting accustomed to the delicious, crisp pickled vegetables. Inside the lively Nishiki Market, sits Uchida Tsukemono, a shop offering a whole array of different Japanese pickles. Depending on the season, inside Uchida, you'll find around 75 to 85 different types of pickles. In Japan, rice, miso soup, and tsukemono make the holy trinity when it comes to classic Japanese meals. As most of the pickles on offer need to be refrigerated, especially during the summer, then we recommend enjoying them while in Japan. Some Japanese people enjoy their pickles with a well-deserved glass of beer after a long day. While having pickles with alcohol might be somewhat unique to Japan, it's definitely worth giving a try as it's just another interesting way to explore Japanese culture.
