It's like all roads lead to this Shrine. At the end of the Nishiki Market. A welcome completion to the outing. You don't expect to find this delightful space in this area.

It's another temple alright. But it the middle of the market. So even more people than usual and not a really pleasant temple either

We stumbled across this after Nishiki Market and were pleasantly surprised. It’s a compact shrine, but lots to see including some animatronics! They don’t draw Goshuin in books, but will sell you one on a piece of paper. Or, they have free stamps which you...More

The shrine took us totally off guard as we weren’t expecting it to be tucked between stores in a mall. It is small, but cute.

This shrine is at the far end of Nishiki Market. It's pretty small, but has some fun features. There is a robot lion that dances and dispenses omikuji (fortunes available in English). There are some other animatronics, so make sure you bring some coins. Since...More

You can find this shrine at the end of the Nishiki market. It has rows of lanterns above the entrance which will be lovely when lighted. A must visit when visiting Nishiki market.

Visited in February 2017 (not April 2017)Wandering through Nishiki market we came across the Nishiki Tenmangu Shrine. Being nosey, we wandered in and couldn't believe that there was such a peaceful place within this bustling market place. If you're visiting the market then pop you...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
