Nishiki Market

Nishiki Market is one of the most famous and busiest markets in Kyoto, perhaps even Kyoto's kitchen. The market only sold fish when it first opened during the Edo period. Today, the market stretches to a narrow, five-block long shopping street of more than 100 stalls, offering all things food related, from fresh produce, vegetables, fruits, cookware, and even kitchen knives! Besides that, you can also find seasonal food and Kyoto's specialties, such as pickles, fried seafood, and Japanese sweets. While you stroll down the market, you will also find some shops giving out free samples that you can try there and then. While in the market, be sure to try their tako tamago, a sweet and salty skewer of small baby octopus with a quail egg inside the head, or their assortment of mochi, from toasted soybean mochi to mochi balls on a stick.

Tips: The best time to visit them is when you’re hungry!

Kyoto Imperial Palace

Once home to Japan's Imperial Family until 1868, Kyoto Imperial Palace is a historic sanctuary in the heart of the city. The palace is located in the spacious Kyoto Imperial Park, which also encompasses Sento Imperial Palace, home to retired emperors in the past, and a few other historic sites like Kaninnomiya Mansion, a former residence for court nobles. The current palace was rebuilt in 1855 after it burnt down and repeatedly moved around town over a few years. It compromises several structures, including the Shisinden, the Seiryoden, the Kogosyo, the Ogakumonjyo, and the Otsunegoten--that reflect the architectural styles of various periods. Today, you can explore the palace buildings and gardens without any guided tours or prior arrangements, although you can't exactly enter it!

Tips: One of the best times to visit the palace is during spring when the cherry trees beside the pond in the park’s northwestern corner fully blooms!

Fushimi Shrine

Fushimi Inari Shrine is arguably the most significant and iconic of all the city's Shinto shrines and is also one of the most photographed locations in Japan. It is most famous for the thousands of red vermilion torii gates which symbolize good harvests as the trails lead into the wooded forest of the sacred Mount Inari. The head of all of Japan's Inari shrines comprises five main shrines – a lower, middle, upper, and two auxiliary shrines, plus many smaller sub-shrines. As you explore the shrine, you'll notice many foxes statues. It is because foxes are considered the messengers of the gods, particularly associated with the God of Rice, Inari Okami. Some of these foxes have keys in their mouths, which If you see some foxes with keys in their mouths, it is because they are protectors of the rice granaries and hold the keys to get inside. Today, thousands of people from across Japan, and millions of visitors from around the world, come to pray for fruitful harvests, business success, and other blessings, especially during New Year.

Tips: When you visit the shrine, bow before you pass through the torii gate at the entrance and under the gate on either side of the centre.

Yasaka Shrine

The most famous shrine in the Gion area with over 1,350 years of history, Yasaka Shrine, or Gion-sha, is a beautiful site full of character and natural charm. The shrine, established before the Heian era in Japan, is also known as a spiritual spot for love and connection. It is not surprising that it is also Higashiyama's biggest tourist destination. The shrine structure is designated as Important Cultural Property of Japan, including the iconic Nishiromon Gate visitors are greeted with when walking to the shrine from Shijo-dori. Upon arriving, you will also notice a heartwarming heart-shaped ema (Shinto plaques) hung around the shrine, usually with written wishes from the visitors. You can also write and hang one yourself after purchasing one for a few hundred yen. Make sure to get the famous amulets, such as chimaki, believed to ward off illness. The amulet has the phrase "Somin Shorai Shison Nari" written on it, which roughly translates to "I am of Somin Shorai (so protect me from disease)."

Tips: As many visitors also come to pray, it is essential to respect those praying.

GOOD EATS

Sohonke Nishin-Soba Matsuba

Although the Japanese buckwheat noodles, soba, is a nationwide staple food in Japan, you cannot miss having this dish in Japan. Kyoto’s soba is served with flavored soy sauce broth and local herring fish – unique to the city. As mountains surround Kyoto, people in the past developed a way to preserve the popular protein by smoking it with a sweet and salty aftertaste. In addition, Kyoto’s amazing water quality also contributed to the already fine ingredients in making the dish. Eventually, the restaurant chef in Matsuba started serving the herring with soba noodles. Since then, Nishin Soba has gained popularity across Japan, and Matsuba is one of the most iconic restaurants in the Gion district of Kyoto.

– Nishin soba
– Hiyashi nishin soba

Fong Wing Kee

Kyoto is famous for fresh vegetables, that there is even a Japanese term for vegetables sourced from Kyoto, Kyo Yasai. These local fresh vegetables are often processed into obanzai, a bunch of home-cooking small dishes native to the region. Another unique characteristic of the menu is incorporating ingredients usually discarded as waste. When cooking obanzai, there are five important spiritual elements: honesty, balance, harmony, hospitality, and minimal waste. About 32 kinds of vegetables are defined as Kyoto’s locally sourced vegetables. Many are seasonal, like eggplant in the summer and daikon radish in the winter. Menami has been serving authentic Japanese food for more than 75 years, and their obanzai platter changes daily based on the availability of local ingredients.

– Obanzai
