After our first temple we headed to Nishiki market. A cab dropped us off at one entrance and we started down this very long covered walkway past hundreds of interesting stalls.
Uniquely Japanese is a good way to describe it; pottery, restaurants, fish markets, vegetable stands and everything in-between.
Lots and lots of pickled choices. The Japanese love to pickle things.
I believe this is grilled eel. Had I not just eaten, I would have grabbed some. Love grilled eel.
The young lady at the stand tried to sell me one of these .. only a couple hundred yen. Look closely, it is a small octopus with a quail egg stuffed where the head use to be. I regret not trying it. Had to chuckle at the little cartoon ad guy saying “It will eat” … not sure what that means.
At some point in the near future, our family will be buying special chopsticks. As of right now, we use them frequently but haven’t made the “special” purchase yet. Perhaps metallic is in order?
This fellow was making the circular Japanese cakes. They are delicious.
And last, check out this flower stall. My Uncle Frank would have loved the colors .. I know I did. So vibrant.
Thanks for dropping by.
