Nishiki Market in Kyoto
Dubbed the "Kitchen of Kyoto", Nishiki market carries all kinds of fresh and processed foods in a narrow shopping alley just one block north of the busy Shijo-dori thoroughfare. It stretches nearly 400m to Teramachi and showcases over 100 shops selling fish, seafood, vegetables, fruits, pickles, tofu products, wagashi (Japanese sweets), dried goods, snacks and ready-to-eat food. I'll let the rest of the photos speak for themselves.
