Wonderful food and vendors. I don't think it's possible to get tired of all the offerings within the market. Everything is fresh and there's at least one item for every craving of the human brain.
This is a place you cannot miss when in Kyoto. Make sure you visit with empty stomach early in morning and take your time to try as much, which most of food are tasty and fresh! It’s easily accessed by bus or station from anywhere. Remember to respect the local systems, queue and don’t rush. Stop at side not blocking people to finish your food before walking again. When taking photos be polite to others and don’t block the traffic flow. This is a crowded place anytime. My personal favorite is the prawn 🍤!
