This shop was on a side street by the Nishiki Market. There was truly a bento box for everyone! I bought several, the cherry blossom was 1,730 and the Mt Fuji one was 2,370 yen. Highly recommend and fluent English was spoken which always helps!...More

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.
