We stumbled across this after Nishiki Market and were pleasantly surprised. It’s a compact shrine, but lots to see including some animatronics! They don’t draw Goshuin in books, but will sell you one on a piece of paper. Or, they have free stamps which you...More

The shrine took us totally off guard as we weren’t expecting it to be tucked between stores in a mall. It is small, but cute.

This shrine is at the far end of Nishiki Market. It's pretty small, but has some fun features. There is a robot lion that dances and dispenses omikuji (fortunes available in English). There are some other animatronics, so make sure you bring some coins. Since...More

You can find this shrine at the end of the Nishiki market. It has rows of lanterns above the entrance which will be lovely when lighted. A must visit when visiting Nishiki market.

I went to explore Nishiki market and this was the first thing I stumbled upon. All this large temples and shrines are impressive but there’s was something serene about this one. It was so quiet and I could actually look around without getting swept along...More

Once you've survived the crazy crowds of Nishiki, reward yourself with this shrine at the end. Hard to miss, just look for the lanterns. Walk along the side toward the back to see additional areas.

Surrounded by chaos and commerce this shrine is a respite from the crazy. It also has well maintained restrooms.

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.
Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall
