Nishiki Market & Teramachi Street

A private Kyoto shopping experience of the traditional and modern

Kyoto 176 Booked

Take a break from temple hopping to discover the diverse local food and retail culture of Kyoto

  • Browse for foods, tea, cooking utensils and more at Nishiki Market's 130 shops!
  • Witness the coexistence of traditional and modern retail culture on Teramachi Street
  • Visit Nishiki Tenmangu Shrine, dedicated to academics and business
  • Let your English speaking guide share fascinating facts about the area and pick out the best shops
What We Love:

Start your morning amongst the bustle and hustle of Nishiki Market, a traditional Japanese market home to an assortment of food products and over a hundred shops selling fresh seafood, seasonal produce and cookware – it's no wonder it's known as 'Kyoto's kitchen'! Our recommendation? Try the soymilk of Senmaruya, a vital ingredient for Kyoto home cooking, with a history of over 210 years. You might find your visit to Teramachi Kyogoku Street somewhat bemusing: the confluence of historical and modern results in the big fashion brands like Louis Vuitton nestled comfortably beside the traditional shops like woodblock painting store Daishodo. This tour is the perfect fusion of cultural experience...and retail therapy session!

Good tour and informative. If you just want to shop, you can just come to the streets and browse yourself. You can learn more about Japanese Kyoto culture and history from the guide.


Great tour of the Kyoto food markets. Got to try so many delicacies from many of the friendly shopkeepers. We had been to this street before, but our guide really made it come alive for us with lots of interesting commentary. We learned lots of interesting details about certain shops that we didn't have a clue about the first time around. Highly recommended for foodies!


Excellent guided tour. Visited lots of interesting local Kyoto shops, some have very historic roots from Japanese ancient history. Lots of food to try. We found lots of great souvenirs to take home
