the only wet market in okinawa, worth to visit but it's not as big as its counterpart in tokyo or hokkaido, be sure to manage the expectation. setup is rather primitive in here. most visitors shopped for the seafood at 1/F and got them cooked and consumed at 2/F. There's seating at 2/F but expect to share table with other... More

This two-storey market is accessed from Central lane. The ground floor has fresh seafood and Okinawa beef for sale. Then you could bring the food to first floor and the restaurant there will cook for you. They charge 500yen per head for three dishes. Two of us have beef, lobster and shellfish. Beef costs 2500yen, lobster costs 4500yen and shellfish... More

Wander through this market and you'll find everything your looking for from luggage cases to fresh live fish. It is a place which you have to visit to fully appreciate.

Amazing place you can buy very strange looking sea creatures and eat it upstairs. Very exciting and unusual eating experience, I just loved it 😊

There were loadz of fun fish to see alive and dead, they prepared them for sale. We just went for a wander round and it was is nice, other tourists there too and other products to see, but nothing super exciting.

Colourful working market . Especially good for seafood . Buy your food downstairs at the market and bring it upstairs to have it cooked and several food outlets for a small fee .,

This is certainly a place for the tourists - surreal array of bazaar sea creatures usually viewed within aquariums! Giant sea snails, colorful parrotfish, skinless puffers, and more! Expect increased prices,..as it is a tourist mecca. Impress the kids and even teenagers with this attraction in Naha, for sure! If you view it as a cool place to see something... More

This market consists of rows and rows of souvenir shops, cafes and some produce stalls. It didn't excite me and I wouldn't recommend making a special trip to see it but if you're staying in Central Naha, it's worth a 20 minute stroll through.

The market is a little touristy, like almost everything in Naha. The best are the restaurants on the second floor. We had a nice dinner on the main floor, where staff were extremely friendly.
