Short Trip in Kyoto Nishiki Market Walking Tour (Small group)

  • ¥ 4,000
  • 2.0 hours
  • Max 8 Guests


Nishiki Market is a famous traditional market in Kyoto. But if you go by yourself, you'll just walk 1,000 feet and not find what you want. We will take you to our recommended stores, and show you where to find the best food from a local's perspective. You can learn local culture during this experience.
This tour starts at 12:00 pm or 15:30 pm—the best time for lunch and sweets. We'll introduce you to many good foods you can try. You can sample many things without hesitation. And we have a connection with the Japanese lifestyle store—great if you want to buy souvenirs. We'll spend about 2.0 hour in Nishiki Market, but afterwards, your stomach will be full and both your hands will hopefully have many shopping bags. At the end, we can tell you about other good spots to visit in Kyoto. We'd like to help you work out an itinerary for enjoying my town.

*This tour can arrange from 2 guests. If you are 1 person, please send us inquiry first.
*If you are more than 8 people, please send us iinquiry, too.

My friends and I had a wonderful experience on this tour. The tour guide, Ms.Gumi was very prompt, and accommodating. Throughout the tour she made sure to give us some facts about the local culture. This was a very good insight to Japanese culture that we were looking for. Definitely enjoyed this tour! Thank you!
