Hamohide Nishiki market main store

The owner, who was born into a family running a fish shop in Nishiki Market, known as “the kitchen of Kyoto,” became independent and opened Hamohide in 2017. “Though it was a hamo (pike conger eel) shop, the prawns started to sell well!” he says.
Shrimp, prawn, and prawn skewers with their bright red colors are lined up at the front of the shop.

Nishiki Daimaru

The storefront is filled with a wide variety of fresh fish, salted and dried fish, and prepared and processed foods such as grilled fish, miso-pickled fish, and sushi. Each item looks delicious and catches the eyes of passersby on Nishiki St. The store starts preparing for the day from 6:00 a.m., and the day’s sashimi, grilled dishes such as eel and salted mackerel, and simmered dishes such as simmered sea bream head are all lined up. All of these dishes can be enjoyed at the store, as there are seats for customers to dine in.

Yamaichi

Founded in the late Edo period (1603-1867), Yamaichi is one of the ten oldest shops in Nishiki Market.
“We continue to serve traditional, delicious, seasonal dishes such as our grilled hamo (pike conger eel), which is made by a special cutting technique using high-quality hamo from the Seto Inland Sea and immediately grilling it with our homemade sauce, and our dried codfish rehydrated in the groundwater of Nishiki Market, keeping the flavors of the good old days,” the owner says.

Yamasho

Appetizing skewers are lined up in front of the shop. Many people take pictures of them. This is a fresh fish store opened by its previous owner in 1950. Yellowtail, sea bream, Spanish mackerel—the seasonal fresh fish are all freshly selected by the knowledgeable owner, who has been coming to the market for 50 years. Sardines and mackerel are cooked with ginger, and white fish is seasoned moderately and cooked in the back of the restaurant, making the most of each fish's unique flavor.

Hatanaka Shouten

Hatanaka Shouten was established 75 years ago. The current, third-generation owner of this family-run fish shop humbly says, “In Nishiki Market, where many stores are over 100 years old, we are still in the middle of the pack.” The shop offers fresh fish, sashimi, grilled dishes, and simmered dishes. Currently, they are focusing on processed products that can be taken home, such as homemade ayu sweetfish with roe simmered in Japanese pepper, fish pickled in miso, heshiko fermented fish, and chirimen sansho (dried baby sardines with Japanese pepper).

Kimura

The variety and quantity of fish lined up in the shop is a sight to behold, which makes it no surprise that this is one of the oldest stores in Nishiki Market, dating back to the Genna era (1615-1624) in the Edo period. Because they purchase fish in large quantities for wholesale to ryotei (traditional Japanese restaurants) and caterers, the retail price to the general public is also very reasonable. You can enjoy at home the same high-quality fish as those served at ryotei and other high-end restaurants.

Notoyo West

Notoyo West opened in 1963 as the west branch of the river fish specialty shop Notoyo. Their merchandise is exactly the same as that of the main store, but their specialty is kabayaki eel grilled over binchotan charcoal. They use Nishiki's groundwater for everything except washing. Since they sell freshwater fish, Nishiki's groundwater is indispensable to keep them alive. Freshness is the main selling point of their grilled fish.

Tsunori

This shop has a long history. It was founded as a caterer in the late Edo period(1603-1867). After WWII, it became a fresh fish merchant, and now, with its ninth-generation owner, it is a fresh fish and charcoal grill shop. In addition to sashimi and fillets, the charcoal grill, which utilizes the facilities from the time when the shop was a caterer, is very popular. The sight of their lively grilling of sea bream, mackerel, yellowtail, saury, and other fish is sure to whet your appetite.

Ookuniya

Founded in 1912, this river fish shop is famous for its eels. Although the store has a small frontage, its reputation resonates far and wide. They insist on domestic eels from Aichi Prefecture and natural eels from the Seto Inland Sea caught in Kojima Bay, Okayama Prefecture. They are carefully grilled over charcoal with a secret sauce. The store’s fourth-generation owner follows the cooking method handed down for generations.
