Experience Details
Discover why Nishiki Market is called ‘Kyoto’s Kitchen’ with this guided tour alongside an English-speaking host. You’ll visit Nishiki Tenmangu Shrine and tour Nishiki Market, feasting on regional specialties and engaging with the local culture along the way. Nishiki Tenmangu Shrine is significant in Kyoto's cultural and religious landscape. The shrine was established in 947 AD (making it over a thousand years old) and is renowned as a sacred site for students and scholars. Nishiki Market has been a beloved fixture of Kyoto for over seven centuries. Its roots can be traced back to the year 1310 when it started as a humble fish market. Located in the city center, the market adapted to the changing times, incorporating new products and specialties while maintaining its rich cultural heritage. The market has numerous stalls and shops, each specializing in unique culinary treasures. This tour will deliver the best of everything from fresh seafood and Kyoto vegetables to savory street food and artisanal sake. Feast on the food of Kyoto, uncover the city’s culture and history, engage with passionate vendors, and visit a shrine over 1000 years old (alongside your expert, English-speaking host, of course).
