Daimaru Department Store boasts one of the biggest food floors in Kyoto. They offer a wide range of Western delicacies, pastries and chocolates, a good selection of sake and a respectable wine department. There are also many stalls devoted to Kyoto's specialty foods such as tofu, fu (wheat gluten), yuba (tofu skin), and beautiful vegetables, both fresh and pickled.
They're located right next to the western end of the traditional outdoor Nishiki Market, and visiting one after the other provides an interesting study in contrasts.
