    Nostalgic Japanese pickles and dishes

    A number of old small shops still stand in the Gion area.  Kamiya Shoten is one of them that serves homemade Kyoto-style pickles in the center of Gion.  Local people stop by this little shop to get fresh pickles to compliment their daily meal.  Inside the shop is a number of barrels where the pickles are made.  Besides the pickles are traditional Japanese dishes such as simmered white radish and hijiki seaweed.  They are all the “taste of a Japanese home.”  Their name is also known for their delicious miso soybean paste.  Some people come to the shop from a distance only to purchase the miso.  Homemade white miso: 600 yen (500g), 900 yen (extra fine: 500 g); available from December to March.
