Covered shopping space. There are many shopping spaces which were below ground, but this one is at ground level. Since it rained a lot while were were there, we were glad to have covered shopping areas.
We also visited some covered markets.
Lots of interesting foodstuff… I am guessing that these are pickled vegetables.
There are all sorts of foodstuff. They are really nice to look at, but I felt a little lost. I am guessing more picked vegetables.
Dessert floating in water. We bought one of this little dessert, and it was immediately scooped out of the water and into a little plastic container (plus spoon) for us.
There was a temple along one of the covered shopping strip.
I enjoyed shopping in Kyoto. There were many well-designed local goods (as opposed to international brands found in most big cities around the world). We bought a few beautiful things which were not too expensive… This will be another post I think.
Hope you are having a nice weekend.
