Nishiki Food Market Walk, Sake-tasting, and Cooking (Tour)

What you can enjoy in this program

Enjoy guided walk of Kyoto’s famous food market (Nishiki) in a small group. At the market, you can enjoy spotting lots of interesting foods as well as helping your guide buy some of the ingredients which will be used later. Then you enjoy walking through back lanes of Kyoto which would never be covered by a big coach group. On the way to the cooking class, we will stop at a former sake brewery to enjoy the tour of the ex-brewery followed by sake-tasting. Finally we reach our kitchen. (Click here to see the images of our house and kitchen. ) Enjoy cooking at our kitchen and eat!

Note: The sake brewery is normally closed on Mondays, but closed irregularly. If your tour falls on their closure, we will give you a ticket allowing you to enter on the next day.
This is an open program. You may share this program with other people, which can be more fun!
