Nishiki Market, a most popular market block in downtown Kyoto. Known as Kyoto’s Kitchen where people can find many Kyoto’s specialty foods, ingredients, souvenirs, even fresh seafood!

We got off from the bus right opposite of Yasaka Shrine that night. It was not so crowded as what I expected. It was 6PM but it looks like a very late night when we arrived there.
