"A stationery shop in Nishiki Market?" you may think. The family running it had been greengrocers since the Edo period (1603-1867), had opened a greengrocery store in Nishiki Market during WWII, and 30 years later, the store became a stationery shop because there was no one to take over the greengrocery business. "The slightly retro stationery is surprisingly popular," they say.

  • household goods


This shop has a long history dating back to 1560 when it was originally founded as "Swordsmith Fujiwara Aritsugu." In the shop, an impressively wide variety of knives, pots, and other cooking utensils handmade by skilled craftspeople are lined up as if reflecting the long history of the store. It is supported by a wide range of customers, from top chefs of Kyoto cuisine to ordinary households.

The aged signboard on the storefront and the product display stand make this tofu shop picturesque. The store was founded in 1901 as a branch of Kamo Tofu Kinki in Kiyamachi, so it has been in business for nearly 120 years. With the store’s dedication to handmade products, the beans are soaked in Nishiki's underground water to rehydrate them, and the traditional taste is preserved by not using machines.

  • soy food


It has been about 90 years since Toritoyo opened in Nishiki Market. It is a shop with a warm atmosphere run by a mother and son. The glass case in the storefront gives the impression that they specialize in poultry, but they also provide river fish. The river fish is purchased directly from Shiga Prefecture. Many of the dishes they offer are homemade, such as ayu sweetfish simmered in sweet soy sauce and moroko (a fish endemic to Lake Biwa) simmered in soy sauce. Ultimately, however, duck is most popular at this store.

“Originally, we sold dried foods such as kelp, but my parents started tsukudani (food boiled down in soy sauce and mirin), and we have become a specialty store of kelp and tsukudani,” says the owner of Chinami. “While using high-quality kelp to make traditional products, we are also promoting kelp for a new audience with our creative original tsukudani, represented by our signature product ‘Oyajinakase.’ We strive to maintain a balance between tradition and innovation while always remembering the tradition of kelp-using cuisine.”
