We had two different tendon sets that were around 1200¥ each. Very tasty and filling! Stuffed to the brim with seafood tempura and my personal favourite, egg tempura! Definitely recommended for those looking for a quick lunch.

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.
