Meet your guide and your group in central Kyoto prior to the 10:00am departure time. Come with an empty stomach and good walking shoes for your 3-hour culinary tour of the Nishiki Food Market, a vast expanse of food vendors selling fresh and prepared wares.
Sample regional specialties like tsukemono, a dish of pickled vegetables from the surrounding mountains; yuuba, or shashimi tofu made from mountain water; and sparkling sake straight from the tap. Visit a total of 12 family-owned shops throughout the tour to get a broader sense of Japanese cuisine from local favorites to national classics.
Your guide will provide detailed information about each dish from farm to plate, giving you not only a literal taste of Japanese food, but also a taste of Japanese culture.
