Pickles of Kyoto

There are some amazing tsukemono shops in Kyoto and a staggering area of different kinds of pickles. Some put out little bowls of samples.
They all seem to end up wrapping them up in plastic and then lovely paper with a sort of pickle them printed on the paper, suitable for framing.
