Nishiki Market Shopping District Reviews
It was impossible to "shop" at Nishiki Market. There was such a crowd that you are just pushed along. more »
やはり人混みやばいで〜す。そして、国内外からの観光客、私達を含めて凄い熱気と活気ですね。いろいろ見所てんこ盛り過ぎる錦市場に偶然迷い込んじゃいました。 食べ歩きも楽しめて、めっちゃ楽しめる場所だと思います。今度は、じっくり見て食べ歩きしたいかもです。今回は、たまたま素通り残念でしたけど、偶然に、知り合いそれもオーストラリア人に出会すハプニングもあって良かったです。それくらい、海外からの観光客にとて... more »After all, it is crowded and it is a lot. And, tourists from Japan and abroad, including us, are very enthusiastic and lively. I happened to get lost in a lot of things to see and see in the flea market. I think that it is a place where you can enjoy eating and walking. This time, I might want to take a closer look and eat. This time, I happened to be sorry, but by chance, it was good that there was also an encounter with an Australian. It is very popular with tourists from overseas.
Great place to try all the snacks and food locally. It is also a real market that sells fresh fish and vegetables. I have been here 5 years ago which tend to have more market stalls then but it’s now more of eateries, dried goods and souvenir shops.
Very vibrant place with plenty of different shops to visit plus you have the Nishiki food market as well. We went at night and the colours and atmosphere was really good. We found a nice little restaurant that had lactose free food on their menu which was a plus!
