Things can get quite expensive but try the Matcha Ice cream & mochi if your a big fan of Green tea.

Keep an eye out for a takoyaki stall that not only sells a variety of flavors of takoyaki, but is also incredibly cheap (200 yen for 6 pieces)!


This cheerful, lively and busy market street is the place to go for Japanese delicacies while in Kyoto. I tried a tiny octopus stuffed with a quail egg, definitely an interesting taste experience. If you are in the area, worth a visit, but I would not tell you to go out of your way to visit.
