    Nishiki Market, Kyoto - Shops

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Kyoto is known for its many culinary delicacies, and you'll find most of them at Nishiki. Meandering through the arcade one can easily be overwhelmed by the sights, the sounds and the smells of the market.

    Fishmongers are barking out "Irasshaimase" (welcome!), while the lively chatter of housewives provides an auditory backdrop. The enticing aromas of roasted tea and chestnuts waft through the air, competing with deep-fried soy milk doughnuts and freshly grilled unagi. The sensory input may be intense, but a trip to Nishiki is a must for any food afficianado visiting Kyoto.

    While the massive Tsukiji market in Tokyo can be confusing and exhausting, Nishiki is more human in scale. The narrow shopping arcade is only 400 meters in length, with just over 100 vendors.

    The history of the market goes back 400 years, and many of the stores you'll see have been here through several generations. And unlike department store food floors, with their gourmet food products from around the world, almost everything you'll find at Nishiki is locally produced and procured.

    This page will give you a quick overview of the market, and the next page will introduce some of the Nishiki market's most interesting shops.

    [align=center]Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum [/align]

    [​IMG]
    Japan is a country filled with ramen fans, ramen connoisseurs, and certifiable ramen maniacs, and now the city of Yokohama has opened an entire museum devoted to the ubiquitous Chinese noodle. More than just an ordinary museum, it's also part historical theme park and part hyper-specialized restaurant mall. And, unlike your usual dusty museum, it stays open till 11pm to accommodate hungry concertgoers returning from the nearby Yokohama Arena.

    Once you're past the entrance turnstiles, the first floor is devoted to numerous museum exhibits and a well-stocked souvenir shop. Clearly the museum's organizers racked their brains to come up with every imaginable ramen-related display they could think of, and the results are here to see -- ramen-making utensils, ramen bowls (over 300), ramen shop matchbooks, chopstick wrappers, curtains and aprons. The historical development of instant ramen is painstakingly chronicled, and the invention of cup ramen (the kind where you pour boiling water directly into a styrofoam cup) is celebrated as the dramatic technological achievement it most certainly was.

    [​IMG]
    Instant ramen packets from around the world adorn the walls, and overhead TV monitors broadcast a continuous stream of ramen commercials from the past 25 years. Ramen history buffs will be delighted (and the rest of us merely mystified) by a replica of the first ramen dish ever eaten by a 17th-century samurai named Mito Komon. Two life-size dioramas show the operation of an instant ramen factory, and since this is a modern museum (it opened in March 1994), there are also banks of interactive video panels. Ramen-themed video games are provided for younger visitors; the one I saw seemed to involve eating as many noodles as quickly as possible (yet more proof of the bad influence video games have on the young).


    [​IMG]
    But the fun is only beginning, since the remainder of the museum (on two underground levels) is a miniature historical theme park. The date is 1958, and the place is shitamachi, a typically bustling working-class neighborhood crowded with tiny shops, houses and restaurants. The time is just 40 years ago, but it's definitely a different era, just before the rapid modernization that changed the face of Japanese cities. As a theme park, "Ramen Town" is not quite Disneyland, but it includes several nostalgic attractions -- vendors selling cotton candy and old-fashioned pastries, weathered storefronts and fifties-era billboards. Behind the storefronts are a time-capsule candy shop, two old-style bars dispensing regional brands of sake, and the main attraction -- eight ramen shops from around Japan, each serving its own distinctive variety of noodles.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    This is ramen for serious connoisseurs, with the eight shops chosen carefully from among the tens of thousands of stores throughout the country. The major ramen capitals -- Sapporo, Hakata, Kumamoto and Kitakata -- are all represented, along with four legendary shops from the Tokyo/Yokohama area. The two Kyushu shops (Hakata and Kumamoto) serve their noodles in a salty whitish broth, made by slow-cooking pork and chicken bones. The Sapporo shop serves its ramen in a miso-flavored soup, a Hokkaido specialty, while the rest of the shops feature soy sauce-based soups made with various combinations of pork and chicken bones and seafood. Each shop has its own distinctive noodles and its own selection of toppings, ranging from the standard chaa-shuu (roast pork) and bean sprouts to kikurage ("wood ear") and garlic chips.

    [​IMG]
    After you've had your fill of ramen, sake, and numbingly sweet old-fashioned candies, you're ready for the souvenir shop back on the ground floor. Take-out packages of noodles from each of the shops are available, along with goods sporting the Ramen Museum's logo (a squiggly spiral line representing a slice of naruto fishcake). Logo merchandise includes plates, pencil holders, tote bags and much more; there are also postcards, cookbooks, and a full range of chopsticks for sale.

    Admission to the museum is Y300, or Y1,000 for a three-month pass, and ramen averages around Y900 per bowl. Sunday evenings seem to be the most crowded, with a 20-minute wait at the most popular noodle shops; other times of the week are far less congested. Parking is available, and it's only a 3-minute walk from the JR Shin-Yokohama bullet train station. Shin-Yokohama can be reached from central Tokyo in about 45 minutes, or a very comfortable 15 minutes if you splurge and take the bullet train for an extra Y800.

    [align=center] Tanabata[/align]

    basic information

    Tanabata, also known as the "star festival", takes place on the 7th day of the 7th month of the year, when, according to a Chinese legend, the two stars Altair and Vega, which are usually separated from each other by the milky way, are able to meet.

    Because the 7th month of the year roughly coincides with August rather than July according to the formerly used lunar calendar, Tanabata is still celebrated on August 7th in some regions of Japan, while it is celebrated on July 7th in other regions.

    One popular Tanabata custom is to write one's wishes on a piece of paper, and hang that piece of paper on a specially erected bamboo tree, in the hope that the wishes become true.

    Colorful Tanabata festivals are held across Japan in early July and August. Among the biggest and most famous ones are the Tanabata Festivals of Sendai in August and Hiratsuka near Tokyo in July.

    Department Store Food Floor -- Specialty Vendors

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    You'll find everything from Belgian chocolates and $500-a-pound Japanese beef to bagels and take-out curries. The scene here is the food floor at Seibu Department Store in Ikebukuro, one of the largest of its kind in Tokyo. It's actually two underground floors, stretching several city blocks and jam-packed with tiny food stalls, each with its own specialty and each independently operated.

    [align=center]Kyoto[/align]

    [​IMG]

    Kyoto was Japan's capital and the emperor's residence from 794 until 1868. It is now the country's seventh largest city with a population of 1.4 million people and a modern face.

    Over the centuries, Kyoto was destroyed by many wars and fires, but due to its historic value, the city was dropped from the list of target cities for the atomic bomb and spared from air raids during World War II. Countless temples, shrines and other historically priceless structures survive in the city today.

    [size=medium][align=center]One hundred kinds of sembei in Asakusa, Tokyo [/align][/size]

    [​IMG]
    The tourist-clogged route leading up to the famous Senso-ji Temple is lined with hundreds of shop stalls selling all kinds of goods - everything from cheap toys and souvenirs to traditional crafts and clothing. There are also a number of food stalls, including one of our favorite sembei shops in town.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The Ichibanya shop sells over a hundred varieties of sembei, with exotic flavors like garlic, wasabi, hot pepper, shiso, plum, seaweed and many more. You'll even find shrimp, bonito, cod roe and other seafood surprises. And while a few of the more outlandish variations may seem like novelty items, many of the flavors are actually very good.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Of particular interest to the sembei aficionado is the little charcoal grill up at the front of the shop, where you can watch the final step in the sembei-making process and then sample some fresh sembei hot off the stove.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Individual sembei start at around Y50, and you can grab a basket and load it up with different flavors as you make your way around the shop. If you're having trouble deciding, there are also gift-pack assortments of some of the most popular flavors.

    (To get to the shop walk down the side alley that runs parallel just to the right of the main route to Senso-ji Temple; the shop is around 2/3 of the way to the temple, on the right.)
