Kyoto: #2.1

So today we decided to make a day trip to kyoto, and we thought we went to the check out the Nishiki market!(錦市場, Nishiki Ichiba) boy were we in for a treat! I will let the pictures do the talking

The Japanese Market are really clean and very nicely organized! Everyone was very friendly in selling and letting you sample all all their produce .. although we were also on a look out for Geishas too!!


On our way back to Osaka, when passing through this market to take the train back, we saw this!

Pounding Mochi

repositioning the mochi

This is a very traditional Japanese tradition that they do as part of New Year’s Celebration. This requires 2 people. One  person pounds the mochi with a giant wooden hammer and the other one wets and repositions the mochi between each stroke.
