"Kitchen of Kyoto" with 400 years of tradition

The so called “kitchen of Kyoto” is a place, where approximately 130 stores are lined up from Teramachi-dori of Nishikikoji-dori to Takakura-dori, within the alley of 400m from east to west and 4m in width. From perishables to the ingredients of the local cuisine of Kyoto, the living necessaries are all prepared. It is always bustling with the shoppers of not only restaurants and inns’ staffs, but also people coming from Kyoto or distant place.
