At the end of Nishiki Market street, Nishiki Tenmangu is dedicated to Sugawarano Michizane, a scholar of the Heian Period. It is a very small schrine. So, don't overlook!

Small shrine but a lot of people almost toward the end of Nishiki market. There are many drug store, desert shops, souvenir shops, and restaurants nearby.

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
