Neighborhoods Nishiki

Spirit

A long alley that beckons to customers with its roof of pretty tinted glass in blue and red, protecting it from rain for an enjoyable shop in any weather. Enter a world of smells and textures, where the resounding "Irasshaimase" (welcome) cries of vendors mingle with gossiping ladies selling yuzushu (yuzu liqueur, an Asian citrus similar to lemon) and donuts made of soy milk.
