It is often said that a Japanese meal is built around rice, miso and pickles. Kyoto has a rich history of pickles or as it is known in Japanese, tsukemono. Because Kyoto is far from the sea and it's climate is humid and subtropical, they have been pickling vegetables there since 14000 BC. This is one of the many traditional #tsukemono shops in Kyoto's famous #NishikiMarket .
