Yubakichi’s rich history dates back to 1790. The delicate yuba is made using domestic soybeans. The yuba has a light sweetness to it. You will find both dried and fresh yuba. The fresh yuba is creamy and has a nice texture. This can be served with just wasabi and soy sauce.

At one end of Kyoto’s Nishiki Market is Daiyasu. Behind the blue noren with white writing is a popular bar for fresh oysters served with sake, white wine, or beer. A casual place to rest your feet and refresh over a beverage and some small bites. Oysters are very popular but there is also a variety of grilled and cooked seafood as well.
