  • Beautiful expensive fish, expensive vegetables and expensive fruit for sale. Here you see the price difference between the Netherlands and Japan. The whole is covered and you can even go upstairs where even more restaurants are and a nice place for an overview photo. If you have seen several markets it is not that spectacular.

  • There are many fresh fish shops, but after all, lunch is delicious. Cheap and hearty seafood bowlist is the best!

  • A lively and clean daily market of Kanazawa! It is the largest fresh food market too. The atmosphere along the covered streets are so colorful. There are many shops and restaurants with excellent local seafood and other produce. Have your lunch here! This is a place not to be missed.
  • One of my favorite fish markets in Japan. You can nice cuts of tuna, salmon and other seafood. Ask them to slice it for dine-in or take out.
