This large fish market provides food for those visiting the local attractions as well as fish and other products to take home. There is a demonstration of how to cut and prepare fish, that is entertaining. Many stalls sell freshly prepared fish, sea-food, meat and...More

Not a big market but good that you can buy fresh seafood with free BBQ facilities at the outdoor area. The tuna craving show is interesting to see if you happened to be there around their show times. It took about 45-60 mins to reach...More

Enjoyed the tuna carving show - an interesting experience if you've never seen it before. The market isn't very big but enough for some shopping and eating. Found some interesting snacks like seasoned preserved scallops and clams which I did not see at the market...More

Having been to many different markets throughout Japan, this was somewhat of a disappointment. The market was really quite small with an outdoor area for eating. Perhaps it has got to do with the timing of my visit, I went at about 1-2 pm. I...More

To get to the market from the Wakayama Station is 510 yen one-way, and the market has mostly small stalls for food. If you're looking for a local fish market with many species and smells, this isn't it. The tuna carving exhibition was very interesting....More
