Spare yourself the visit. All this food can be purchased elsewhere and more cheaply. It's nice to see everything in one place but there are way too many people. Overall, disappointing.

Went on a Sunday and it was so busy we couldn't look very well, so we went back on a Wednesday and was much better. Browsed in the small shops and found many souvenirs and tried some different foods. Pineapple ice cream was so good....More

We couldn't post a review for the small-group Nishiki market tour (run by Viator) on its TripAdvisor page, so we are doing it here. The Nishiki market is very interesting, but it was made fascinating by the tour we had with US citizen, John, who...More

Long indoor market where all kinds of special food is sold. The market is very busy and full of customers. It is worth seeing what specialties Japanise eat. But look after streets that market crosses, because car drivers are not very polite.

Went here to see how it looks like. It was nice to experience the place. Many food to try and souveniers to buy. Still prefer Tsukiji in Tokyo better than this for some reason. Nonetheless, its still a must go for those in Kyoto!

We visited this market on a rainy Saturday here in Kyoto, so the only downfall was how busy it was! The walkway is not very wide and tons of people are walking through. In any case, we tried many types of fish while walking through,...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
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.

The Nishiki market does not open until about 10am. Good to get there early before the crowds and before it gets too hot. There are long queues where the food is popular. Check the website for open days because the fish... More
