On Fridays and Saturdays the Nambu Market is open at night so I returned to the market after dark to see what the nighttime scene was like. Some of the market’s stores had closed but others remained open and a lot of new vendors had set up shop in the market’s passageways. The thing I remember most about that night was how crowded it was and how I seemed to hit an absolute wall of various food aromas when entering the market. A lot of vendors were cooking food for the crowds that were surging through the market and I was being hit by so many different smells that I had trouble distinguishing them from each other.

On the upper level of the Nambu Market there’s an area with a bunch of small shops where local artisans sell their artwork. As I remember, the shops mostly showcase the work of younger artists, with the idea being that giving them a spot in the market will help get their artistic careers off the ground.
