Nara-zuke, Pickle shop – Jyukichi-ya
Close to South Gate of Yakushiji, there is a famous Nara-zuke Pickle shop. Nara-zuke pickle have smell, thus some don’t like it, some loves it. I bought the popular one called “Yakushi miso pickle” 110g 600yen
Jyukichi-ya: popular item : Yakushi Miso pickles
If you visiting the Inari shrine or Jyukichi-ya from Yakushiji, it is very easy as you come out from South gate, you will find it. But if you coming from Nishinokyo station directly, then it would be good take the route as below. And if you visiting Yasugaoka Hachimangu Shrine , take the path ahead with the Stone monument.
