Chaotic, nice food

We went with a group of 4 adults, a rowdy toddler and a young baby. Not the easiest group and arrived quite late. Bought prawns, a large lobster, a big conch-like snail and a... read more

Visited in Aug with my family. There are some interesting seafood available but they are not very cheap. You can buy the seafood on the ground floor and the shop owner will take you to the second floor where the seafood will be cooked by another operators. If you are eating raw, the shop will cut it for you and... More

We went with a group of 4 adults, a rowdy toddler and a young baby. Not the easiest group and arrived quite late. Bought prawns, a large lobster, a big conch-like snail and a parrot fish to be prepared upstairs. Lobster and conch were halved and split between sashimi preparation and sautéed in butter. Excellent meal!!! I found the market... More

At the Public Market, you'll get a great immersion into Japanese food, fabric, stationary - everything for everyday life. Stop by for lunch on the &st floor at the fish/meat market. Order sashimi and lobster (the restaurant will cook it for you) directly from the market stalls, can't be fresher and tastier.

You can pick out your food downstairs and have it cooked for a small fee or just go upstairs and order a meal. Low prices, good food and Okinawan.

This market is fun at night even if it is a bit touristy. They also have stalls selling items to support cat protection. The pictorial tiles on the floor are great to look at as well. During the day the fish markets are open and you can go and get wet fish and the will cook it for you upstairs.

This public market is close to Naha station and just next to Hyatt hotel where I stayed. It's quite large with multiple sections - external selling clothes and souvenirs, internal wet market with seafood and meat, and upstairs with some restaurants . You can buy the seafood from downstairs and have them cooked upstairs

If in the area you must go! If you've never spent time in a fish market, etc. then this is a good start as the market vendors are organized and extremely clean. In addition to beautiful fish and fresh sashimi, you can find vendors selling katsu boshi (which they shave on the spot!), Okinawan peanut tofu, stewed and dried meats,... More

Have you ever eaten the stone fish sashimi? If not please go to Makishi market, all the fish is fresh, at reasonable price; you can eat the sashimi inside the market and they sell you even the drinks, of course the best combo is with an iced Orion beer!

Many things sell the same things but the hard dried fish (katsu boshi) can be finely shaved right before you eyes and can be used to make dashi (soup base). They will also vacuum pack, so it will fit easier in suitcase, will last for 6 months not open, refrigerate for 3 months.
