Zuishinin-Komachi Tedukuri-ichi (Handcraft Market)
The Yamashina area of Kyoto was historically pivotal to transportation, and prospered through the exchange of people, goods, and information. Based on the concept of reclaiming that liveliness, the Zuishinin-Komachi Handcraft Market is held on the grounds of Zuishin-in Temple on the first Sunday of each month. From hand-made pickles sold by the older residents to cute handmade accessories, this market is full of unique original items. One of the best parts of the market is the chance to taste and compare different coffees and sweets. While the market is small, there are a lot of visitors, giving it a bustling atmosphere. Above all, it is truly delightful to visit in spring, when the plum tree garden on the grounds is in full bloom, so you can gaze at the plum blossoms as you shop.
Many stores sell handmade food items such as cookies, pickles, and tea. It’s fun to walk around, eating different foods.
