What You'll Do
  • Take a 3-hour walking Kyoto food tour of the world famous Nishiki Market
  • Visit 12 family owned shops and stalls to sample and choose your food to be prepared at lunch
  • Try the world's smoothest sashimi tofu, macha, dashi tamagoyaki and fresh seafood
  • Learn about the process of production from harvest, to sale at the market to preservation
Enjoy a walking food tour through the Nishiki Food Market, an area known to locals as the Kitchen of Kyoto.
What to Expect
Your experience will include stops at 12 family owned stalls and shops which have stood the test of time. At a few of the stops you will sample specialty products like tsukemono (vegetables from the surrounding mountains preserved in vinegar), yuba (the world's smoothest sashimi tofu made from the world famous Kyoto mountain water), and sparkling sake straight from the tap.  At the other stops you will buy some specialty items for us to enjoy later at lunch including Saba (Mackerel), Dashimaki Tamago (specialty grilled egg dish made from specialty Kyoto fish and seaweed stock), Sansho (Japanese red pepper), Kamaboko (seafood preserved in fish paste), Tako (Octopus with quail egg) and Matcha (ground tea leaves).

During the tour you will learn detailed information about the ingredients of different Japanese dishes, how their food is prepared and what is used to eat it. You will learn the process, from the ground to your bowl, of how white rice is processed for consumption and the origin of roasted tea leaves! Your experience will do more than just give you a chance to taste Kyoto's delicious food but will also give you a sense the history and atmosphere of the Nishiki Market experienced by the Japanese for generations. You will be consumed with physical and visual stimuli every step of the way and will enjoy stories from the past told directly from shopkeepers and families you will spend time with.
