There is a convenient parking spot next to the market. We went early around 9am and there were many female vendors cleaning the fishes they were selling. It was very clean despite it is a fresh fish market. There are lots of dried seafood that that you can buy including conch meat, squids and fishes. There was lady selling her own handmade lacquer jewelry and old ladies selling mini souvenir sandals. The walk can be finished quite quickly as we were early and most shops were not open.

the shopkeepers tend to be pushy (not something that is common in Japan); didn’t like the atmosphere. A lot of the urushi goods are not authentic Wajima-made but imported from China.

We stopped at the morning market on a recent trip to the Noto Peninsula and Wajima. The day was rainy, windy and quite cold. My sense was that many of the stalls did not open because of the weather. There was an interesting display of goods in those that were open, but the market was smaller than I expected. I enjoyed my trip to Wajma, but I would not necessarily go all that way to visit this market.

It operates in the morning till 12noon. Car parking spaces were available two streets away at the Asaichi Parking lot at a cost of ¥300 per stay. Tourists were welcome and phablets would be given by local authorities once the car was parked. The staff would ensure the travelers know the way to the market. They were very friendly. At the market, there were numerous shops and stalls selling bags, chopsticks, accessories, seafood, vegetables, pottery items, folk crafts, lacquerware ... The vendors were mainly females. There was a charcoal corner in the rest area where buyers were free to use to grill any seafood purchased and eat it right away. Very funny experience.
