Visiting the Nishiki Market in Kyoto, Japan in search of tasty eats! Nishiki Market (錦市場) is the most popular food market in Kyoto and it’s a great place to sample some Japanese street food. This is a covered market that stretches out five blocks, with shops and food stands on either side, and there’s a lot of seafood on the menu. Most shops tend to specialize in one type of Japanese food and it’s worth arriving before the lunch hour if you want to avoid waiting in lines. One thing to note is that Nishiki Market isn’t just a food market; you can also buy high-end cookware and cooking utensils. There are shops that specialize in fancy pots, pans and knives, and this has earned Nishiki Market nicknames like "Kyoto’s Kitchen" and "Kyoto’s Pantry".

Kyoto Street Food | Tour of Nishiki Market (錦市場), Japan:

Hey guys! We are Samuel and Audrey, a vlogging travel couple from Canada. In this travel channel we share our travel and food vlogs while touring the world. Our most recent trip was to Japan where we spent 2 months traveling around the country and visiting the following destinations: Osaka, Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara, Nikko, Takayama, Yokohama, Odaiba, Shirakawa-gō and Takao.

During our stay, we visited a mixture of big cities and small rural towns, where we enjoyed eating Japanese street food, trying traditional Japanese cuisine, visiting local attractions and staying in unique accommodations (such as capsule hotels and ryokans) that we are now going to share with you on this channel. The combination and contrast of visiting futuristic cities and traditional countryside areas is what makes travel to Japan so fascinating. Ultra modern versus traditional. This is the essence of Japan.

Our trip to Japan was unforgettable and until now it is one of our favorite countries that we have come to know. However, we only feel as though we just scratched the surface on this trip to Japan. If you want to see more videos from Japan in the future, let us know in the comments that places you’d like us to travel to and food experiences you would like to see on this travel channel.

Have you traveled to Japan before? What was your experience like? Please share your Japan travel tips, advice and experiences in the comments below.
