Kyoto markets

Once a month the Nishiki markets are held in Kyoto. It's a good opportunity to rub shoulders (or elbows) with the locals in search of a bargain, and cast your eye over many a antique gem. I managed to score myself a beautiful soft vintage kimono that I intend to use as a dressing gown, and a bag of super tart mandarins - yum!  One of the best things about the market is the people watching. Above are some images my boyfriend captured as we wandered around. I love the guy in stripes!
