What you'll do

In ancient times, Kyoto developed into a political city that played an important role in the long history of Japan. Currently, Kyoto is a must-see spot for many tourists due to its tremendous number of architectural sites.

However, little is known that Kyoto has a long history of their cuisine.
You will be able to explore an exciting attraction of the city that features the local foody experience at "Sanjo Market".

For over 400 years, Sanjo Market has been a much-loved staple for the locals.
Many still shop at this market every morning,but it's different from Nishiki market in a crowd of tourists not popular yet.

1. Have the small Kyoto dishes loved by Kyoto locals - There are tons of shops on the street and it is not easy to pick foods. On the tour, we'll walk and sample the best local foods you must try in the market. You'll never miss true local foods cooked there.
The tour includes a couple of food samplings enough to fill your stomach.

2. Learn about the place and culture from locals - We don't just visit there. You'll get insights into Kyoto food culture and find a new charm and deepen your knowledge of the old capital. Also, your guide will give you some tips about what to do in Kyoto for your rest of your Kyoto trip!

Don't get caught walking in a crowd of tourists at Nishiki market, feel and taste more locat at Sanjo Market.
