Located perpendicular at the end of the Teramachi outdoor shops is Nishiki Market. This market is full of food items - wonderful to stroll through and people watch or experiment with great new flavors.

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited

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.
