“Great place for watching people and ships...and fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

This is the place for FRESH fish. IF you want uber fresh sushi, go no where else. Also here you can actually see the fish living in wells/pools and if you go early in the morning you can witness the bidding of prize fish. This region is known for Fugu (a.k.a extremely poisonous blowfish, a delicacy that takes about 3 lives a year from poor preparation). Sorry if that was too much information. Lots of space to walk along the boardwalk and have a picnic or ferry over to Moji, only 5 minutes by boat. You will enjoy it.

“Fugu sashimi and miso soup”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

Karato ichiba has a very fresh fish product. Sushi is cheap..but I like fugu miso soup very much. Try crab (kani) katsu also...it's very delicious.
