Explore Kyoto’s famous Nishiki Market (Nishiki Ichiba), known as the “Kitchen of Kyoto!” And for good reason, too, as this shopping street has five blocks of vendors selling everything from kitchenware to seasonal produce. It’s a delight for the senses, a place where you can sample before you buy, and even pick up some ready-to-eat foods from stalls or rest your feet at a sit-down restaurant. Nishiki Market began as a wholesale fish market, but has grown into much more ever since the first vendor set up shop in the early 1300s. And it’s not just for tourists, it’s a place where locals also come to browse and decide on ingredients for the day’s dinner. It is here in Nishiki Market, amid the fast-paced hustle of beckoning vendors, that we’ll start our food tour and ramen making class. We will stop by at a few different places to pick up the best ingredients for our ramen of the day, then head to the ramen restaurant where we will bring it all together, creating the ultimate bowl of ramen. Whatever dietary needs you have, we have got you covered, with options for halal, gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian. Just let us know! There’s nothing more satisfying than making a meal from scratch, which you can share with your friends and family. So come here, learn, have fun, and take back the recipe and techniques to make a delicious bowl of ramen in your kitchen at home!

Nishiki Market is made up by over 130 shopfronts and restaurants spread across 5 blocks. Known as the “Kitchen of Kyoto” for over 400 years, the market sells all kinds of regional produce and locally-made goods. Visiting Nishiki Market makes for a wonderful sensory overload: feeding the eyes with colorful produce, stimulating the nose with the aroma of street food, and tantalizing the taste buds with fresh seafood and delicious local sake. Nishiki Tenmangu Shrine lies at the eastern end of Nishiki Market, intersecting the equally-as-long Teramachi Shopping Arcade.
