Makishi Public Market is located next to the main street, the Kokusai Dori. You can easily find the market for lunch / dinner after wandering on the main street. The 1st floor (actually the ground floor) has meat and seafood stores. It's nice to look around the seafood stores especially if you are a seafood lover. You can buy seafood... More

Well, as others said this is the place to have meal. Because you can buy the seafood at 1st floor and send it to cook at 2nd floor. Why I says bad for meal? 1st) Way too touristy, when you enter the market, there are two section, meat and seafood. As for what i realised, seafood section, pure tourists. Meat... More

Second floor has a good selection of Okinawan favorites, as well as sashimi boats with 24 pieces of fish for 1000 yen. Ate here twice in three days! Wasn't very crowded in February, never had to wait for a table.

For a sashimi fan, this is a definite must to visit. The first thing I spotted was the boxes of oysters from different part of Japan. As can be seen from my photo, freshly shucked and reasonably priced and delicious. Seafood can be purchased from ground floor stall and to be cooked by the stalls on 2/F. For those who... More

This is a great place to eat, a lunch, with the locals and, enjoy freshly caught fish. The prices are very reasonable. It's also, one of my favorite locations for photography. You could easily, spend a few hours, finding interesting subjects as you meander through the marketplace. If you are a shopper, here's a little tip: The farther you go,... More

A very traditional market. Go to the shop to buy the seafood first, then they will take you their vendor restaurant. Other than the price for the seafood, you have to pay 500yen/person for the cooking fee. Make sure that the seafood shop give you the correct food. We ordered an extra salmon sashimi, when food is arrived, we found... More

As a huge sushi/sashimi fan, I was incredibly happy with the market and the restaurants above. The food was fresh and a good value. We ordered off the menu at one of the restaurants but most of the people around us (locals) bought seafood from the market downstairs and had the restaurant prepare it. Whichever route you go, the food... More

The sashimi was very fresh and very cheap. Nothing much to say about this place, except that it's a must visit for sashimi and seafood lovers. If you are lazy to pick your catch then just pay 500 yen to 1000 yen for a sashimi basket - good enough if you are not fussy. also if you intend to cook... More

A bit run down which is a shame because it was good but could have been so much better. Had lunch upstairs. This is where we were introduced to the world of Taco-rice, one of the worlds greatest inventions! The giant snail sashimi style was excellent

For a fish lover like myself, this place was a fish mecca. The place was a little hard to find but the locals will gladly point you in the right direction. We got here quite late so not all the fish stalls were opened but we still managed to buy a yummy rack of sea urchin and a plate of... More
