Eat Your Way down the Nishiki MarketI could stroll down the crazy clean alleys of Nishiki market every day. Everything from the sashimi lollipops to the giant oysters to the octopus stuffed with quail egg merited a repeat. And when I was feeling too full, I just wandered into shops brimming with spices, quirky stamps, or home décor (my favorite for the latter: Nishiki-Koji Gallery and Café) before tasting new delicacies.
