Nishiki Market runs several blocks along a covered lane. It is in an upscale downtown area and offers an complete look at the variety of Japanese foods, many so odd to the Western eye. I like the traditional market presentations here, something that is becoming lost to modernization in the neighborhood supermarkets.
Fresh grilled squid and scallops on a stick – yum!
Peaches are prized here and priced accordingly. Those yen prices range from about USD $3.50 to $7.00 per peach. Don’t touch!! God forbid that you spent $7.00 for an unripe peice of fruit!
There’s just an vast selection of pickled and packaged veg…
This stuff was the ugliest on display, but thanks to the English signs, made it an easy selection for one of the tastiest foods available.
Eel in a variety of presentations- quite pricey here.
The matcha shop – green tea in powdered form crafted into an amazing selection of products!
