Nishiki Market is in the heart of the historical city of Kyoto. It is open to the public and you will find most of Kyoto`s famous food products here from yuba (soy milk skin) to tsukemono (pickles) to ocha (tea). The Aritsugu knife shop offers more than a huge selection of knives but also a variety of kitchen tools. A new addition to the market is a standing bar where you can have fresh oysters and wine. Do not miss the Photo Tour and Yukari's list of favorite shops.
