The market has many unfamiliar items for the non Japanese. You could walk through without hassle . There were no people pestering you to buy anything and if you stopped and asked for anything people were so helpful.

Yes I know it's a traditional market that's been going on for centuries but I feel it's been overly hyped in the Japanese guide books. It's a nice stroll but most of the stalls are offering the same fruits/vegetables. Occasionally there's a handy craft stall...More
