As one would expect from a Nishiki Market delicacy store, Kikuya has shelves after shelves of unique foods. There are many rare items, and even just looking through the shelves and refrigerators is exciting. There are more than 400 items. Not only are there seafood delicacies, such as karasumi (dried salted mullet roe pouch) and sea urchin, but also frozen foods, ingredients for tea ceremonies, nuts, dried fruits, etc. You will find a wide range of rare and tasty products. Kikuya is not only a shop with a wide variety of snacks that go well with drinks. It is also a shop that supports the growing appreciation of Kyoto’s cuisine.

What a surprise! This shop even has the very talked-about insect foods such as various larvae including bee larvae, locusts, etc.... Did you know that Insect food is part of traditional food culture and a good source of protein?

There is konowata (fermented salted sea cucumber intestines), uruka (fermented salted ayu sweetfish organs), vinegared salmon cartilage, kaitoge (seasoned octopus eggs), and more. Traditional delicacies of the highest quality are available.
Kikuya is now gradually increasing its organic and vegan products as well.
