    As an European tourist, I must admit I was not aware of the customs of a ryokan. An establishment such as this is not a place where you go to like any other hotel. People usually go here for the baths, the very intimate setting...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.
