There is also an area for seasonal fruits, and kyo-kasai (Kyoto-grown vegetables) in addition to food stalls and restaurants.

Just 2 stations away from the main Kyoto Station, you'll have easy access to many sightseeing areas. Jump on the train to visit the bustling Shijo-Kawaramachi, the famed Arashiyama Bamboo Grove and Fushimi Inari Shrine.
