I highly reccomend a stroll to the Nishiki market while staying in Kyoto. The market is huge and be prepared for queuing. Slow down your pace and make sure you are not in a hurry and just simply enjoy all the flavours, colors and impressions in this exciting market. Try some of the "street-food" along your stroll, highly reccomended!

The assault on your senses is not to be under-stated - sight, sound, smell, and taste (if you're brave enough). Cheek by jowl are the Retailers (Vendors), but the Tourists or Shoppers are even closer. Be prepared to abandon all prior cares about Personal Space, Bumping into or rubbing-up against others - It is unavoidable. Some even seem to relish it, like a subtle full body Contact Sport. Little Birds (Sparrows) deep fried on skewers, Baby Octopus with a Quail's egg stuffed up its Kyber Pass were two of the more notable Delicacies offered (and Declined). I did not see any Whale Richard, Rhino Hawn or other Animal Body parts, thank goodness.

There were plenty of raw seafood. After a while of considering, I tried some of them and the result was absolutely surprised. The taste was so so good!

The place is nice to see and discover about local food, like pickled vegies, etc... But it is crowded. Tourists often block the way to look at a shop, and walk around slowly to wonder at these things they've never seen before.

This is a fabulous and fascinating market with an excellent range of interesting food stalls selling things to eat as well as items to cook and some nice shops selling Jpanese crafts. Well worth a couple of visits.
