Went here several times during our stay. Enjoyed sampling and buying some different foods that we were not familiar with. Busy with many tourists, but easy to stop for a refreshment along the way.

A walk through the market is an assault on all senses - really great insight into the Japanese cuisine. Many shop offers tastes.

Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
