You can find almost any food in the Nishiki Market in Kyoto, Japan. What you're looking at here is a pickle shop. These huge barrels are filled with salt and topped with a spray of pickled vegetables, called tsukemono. I can't begin to name all these vegetables but I'm pretty sure you'll find eggplants, Japanese radish, leaf vegetables and cucumbers here... somewhere :-) Together with the bright lettered signs and richly weathered barrels, they make a very attractive display!
