我喜欢那里的market
干净
待客亲切
而且货品琳琅满目
可惜你忘了买绿茶回来

Sonia, my friend's parents from HK did buy a pack of rice back to Hk& it was like 9kg!This pickled Sakura must be very popular in Kyoto as when I checked with my gf from Nagoya,she never heard of itbuenos she is helping me to find in Nagoya later & is she can't find them,she will buy online & send to her mother's house as she has moved to Sydney! thanks for sharing all these beautiful pictures with us

I also love going to the local markets at various places. Nishiki market looks huge! I think I would (gladly) spend an entire day there =P haha. Oh, you know what? I actually carried back some Japanese rice! Good thing my other things were all lightweight.

thanks for sharing great pics and useful info. Haha..I think Jessie is quite right that the pickle Sakura must be something popular only in Kyoto. My friend from Tokyo also didn't have have a clue what's that when I showed her the pic.
