Kyoto International Community House (“kokoka”) have organized a free tour of Kyoto Central Wholesale Market for Saturday May 10th. What they don’t mention is that the market is open to the public, every second Saturday of the month, 12 months of the year and worth a visit with or without a guide. It’s not quite on the league of Tokyo’s Tsukiji of course, but an interesting place to visit nonetheless and the seafood is extremely cheap. Mewby and I picked up a huge bag of mussels there on our last visit at a very reasonable price.
Anyway, here are the details of the free tour if you would like some expert guidance to all the fish varieties on offer:
