Nishiki Market & Tenmangu Shrine, Kyoto

We took the town-bus to the Kyoto's kitchen - Nishiki Market.

So many things to see and experience here. I can say I only know 40% of the food in the market.  We discovered some new food here among the unforgettable one are the sweet black bean and of coz the famous Nishiki Octopus with quail egg.

The octopus with quail egg is so juicy and yummy.  Price range from 150yen to 300yen each.

The sweet black bean is a black bean boiled in sugar water and then dried.  The beans are huge and kind of creamy and sweet of coz.  We love it so much, the look can be so deceiving, but it tastes so good.  It cost around 1000yen for 100gram.  Quite expensive but very exquisite.
There are fresh fruits, dried fruits, preserved fruits, desserts, fried chicken, sushi, tempura, and many other things in Nishiki.

Ohhh, I bought an Aritsugu knife here too.
Just walk till the end of the row and you will get to the Nishiki Tenmangu Shrine.

Here's our video at Nishiki..

Gion District, Kyoto

After a tiring morning walking up the hills at Kiyomizudera, we had an hour rest in the hotel room, then we brave ourselves for another long evening walk in Gion District.

Gion District is quite a tricky place to find, there are so many streets in the area and we were not sure which is which.  End up we only manage to cover the red (Hanami-koji) area.  We hope to cover the green (Shirakawa) area in the future, fingers cross, and also the Maruyama Park during autumn or spring, that would be nice.
We took a bus from Kyoto Station, same bus to Kiyomizudera, bus no. 100.  We passed by Yasaka Shrine, Gion Corner, and lastly Kenninji Temple.

Warning shaky videos ahead.
