Kyoto life Blogs

GTK would like to introduce the real Kyoto life by GTK bloggers. Some of them migrated from their countries
to Kyoto, and want to share how to enjoy the Kyoto life. These blogs are quite useful for visiting Kyoto, and also
for people who hope to live in Japan.

Ohara Sunday Market


It was a sunny Sunday yesterday. Jidai-matsuri Festival was held in downtown.
I woke up early and went to Ohara, northen part of Kyoto city, to enjoy the Sunday Market which is held at 6~9am every Sunday.
Not only fresh vegetables but also flowers, bread, handicrafts etc. are displayed at like a garage. I was so excited to see them and, above all, to breathe fresh air of Ohara in such a beautiful morning.
Each bunch of vegetables is almost ¥100, so cheap! I got a lot of them and some wildflowers.
After shopping, I had a cup of coffee with a homemade mint cake at the corner of the market. So happy!
One more happy thing was to see one woman by chance! Her name is Venetia who is a writer and living in Ohara, sometimes has the lecture about the herbs she is growing. I like to read her books and want to spend time in the country side like her, actually. Of course I said hello to her and talk about GTK a little!
Wao! The early bird catches the worm!
I enjoyed walking to Sanzen-in Temple through the mountain trail after the market. It was a nice excise!
