Didnt find it as fascinating, probably because I have been to Sydney fish market and Tokyo Tsukiji fish market. I would only encourage you to go if you have not been to a fish market.

This place sells fresh seafood and you can eat fresh oysters, sea urchins, scallops at the store. The seafood in Ishikawa is one of the freshest and the best.

As Markets go it is just OK. Restaurants are expensive. It is a relatively small market and you can buy fish but mostly shell fish. A few vegetable shops and a larger open shopping area.

There is a curry shop inside the Omicho Market, in the basement. "Go Go curry" you could choose curry. Another choice "AZZAN" is HALAL.
