河太郎の開店前に寄りました。思ったよりも小さく、歩いて食べられるようなものはあまりありません。魚やイカは安いのですが鮮度の問題で持って帰れない... I came before Kawataro's opening. It is smaller than I thought, and there are not many things which we can walk and eat.

To be frank, I live within walking distance of this market and it's one of things which I can point too as making me feel like I actually live in Japan. Yobuko is known for one thing in Japan: squid. When telling people where I...More

It's best if you arrived before 9-10 am. We reached around 11.30 am and some of the stalls are already closing.

We visited on a rainy morning and arrived at a deserted market. Not sure if stores and sellers decided to pull out because of the rain, but hardly any stores were open. Of the few that were open, they were selling a variety of seafood...More

This place is worth the drive! - Highly recommend to get there by 9am to enjoy the street lined with morning makeshift stalls. Quite an interesting experience. A must try is the octopus balls and freshly opened Uni saahimi at Yen400 and you can literally...More
