Your Travel Angel's plus

Catherine, who has been living in Japan for more than 20 years, has never found a better market than Nishiki to do her shopping. A first class interpreter, she translates the name of all the products for you, and helps you do your shopping for the day.


Your Travel Angel will help you discover the famous market in Kyoto when it awakens, when the shops are just opening and the merchants are setting up their stalls.
She will introduce you to the local specialities and curiosities, its delightful shops, and give you recipe ideas that you can put into practice that evening in your home. 

Free for children under 10. 

After online registration, the organizer will confirm by email a week before the scheduled activity that the tour is running.


Your Travel Angel will contact you to give you the meeting point.
