Kyoto's Nishiki Market is a narrow, shopping district lined with over one hundred shops selling various kinds of fresh and processed foods. Known as "Kyoto's Kitchen", the market has been around for over 400 years with many of the shops owned and operated by the same families for generations. Shoppers are sure to find plenty of Kyoto's specialties, including Tsukemono (pickled garnishes), Japanese sweets, dried food, sushi, and fresh seafood and vegetables. Some of the most popular foods to try at Nishiki Market include: Konna Monja (healthy, tofu sweets), Sawawa (Green tea sweets Matcha green tea pudding), and Karikari Hakase (Takoyaki). The market is also a great place to stop for souvenirs, such as Maikado (Kyoto folding fans and miscellaneous goods) and Korokoro ko (cute Kyoto souvenirs and candies wrapped in special handkerchiefs).
