Nishiki market & Toji Flea Market

by bllee17

Hi there!

We are planning to visit Kyoto in May 21, 2007. We heard so much about Nishiki Market. How do i go there?
I always fascinated about flea market. I heard there is a flea market at Toji temple. May i know which day are they open and how to get there?

Your reply would be appreciated.

Regards
Bee Ling

the flea market at toji temple opens only on the 21st of each month. When we went, it was a tuesday. What to see - everything from antiques to clothes to food to bags etc. Prices range from cheap (700yen for a kinomo material pouch to 4500yen for the one of a kind cap I bought) The flea market opens early in the morning. I went at 9am and it was packed already.

You can get there by train, it stops at toji temple station. From there, follow the crowd. You can also use the high pagoda of the temple as a destination locator. The flea market is in the temple grounds.

P/s: beware of pickpockets. It can get really crowded at the flea market.

Travel Tips for Kyoto

Kyoto Tip

by kat_on_moray

I have many, but one of my favourite was sitting by the Kamo-gawa on a raised platform eating delicious Japanese cuisine in the summertime. This kind of yuka-dining is only available in the summer and is well worth it.

Graveyard on the walk up to Kiyomizu Temple

by ClareyD

A little unusual, but we found this by accident. Rather than following the main route up to the Kiyomizu Temple with all the usual stalls selling souvenirs we found a path at the bottom of the hill just by the main freeway intersection that took us up the hill through a graveyard.

Space being at a premium in Japan the graveyards are built on the side of hills/mountains where they can't build houses. Walking up through the graveyard was very peaceful and it was interesting to see the wonderful variety of grave stones and quite a few crows hanging around.

SHINKASEN

by Adeline_Foo

I took the second fastest Shinkasen bullet train from Tokyo to Kyoto. The whole journey took less than 3 hours!
In Kyoto, you can buy a 'BUS' pass for the whole day for Yen500. It allows you to ride any bus and allows you to hop-on-and-off the bus. Most buses goes to the major tourist attractions. You will get a free bus map which shows you the bus no & stops to all these tourist attractuibs when you buy the bus pass

You have to visit this 'kawaii' (means cute) market selling mouthwatering delicacies and great value souvenir. Make sure go in early morning as everything is fresh and less people.

Sweet smelling barbeques
Colourful cakes and 'mochi'
Rare and traditional preserved vegetables
Live seacreatures

Temple of enlightenment

by Toshioohsako

Ryoanji (The Temple of the Dragon at Peace) is a Zen temple (1450), located ibn the Northwest of Kyoto. Its famous "Karesansui" rock garden (UNESCO's World Cultural Heritage Site) is consists of 15 moss-covered boulders. Its a place for meditation and enlightenment. The interior of the "Kur"-the main temple building is a well-conserved house and one can see the essence of Japanese house architecture. The garden is superb with a beautiful bridge and a large pond. Its a good place for promenade.
