We found this cool market area called Nishiki Market. It is an area with small covered streets with shops, markets, and restaurants lining both sides. They have a little bit of everything. Fruits and vegetables.

Some of Maddie’s favorite finds were the locust, bee larva, and squid.

Tucked in this crowded market were cool little passages and little temples.
