Return to Kyoto’s Nishiki Markets

I had to return to these markets. I was on an errand — a request for a ginger grater in a kitchen shop. I had ignored such places up until then, but now that I was forced to enter the store, I discovered what a fascinating lot of merchandise the shop carried.

Once I made my purchase I was told I could have a name engraved in Japanese on the instrument. What a great gift idea.
