This fish market gives you the opportunity to make your own nokedon, a rice bowl topped with fish and sea food. You need to buy tickets and a bowl of rice and off you go browsing through the market. There are some tables where you can sit down and have tea and miso soup with your nokedon. It is very... More

I went here in the summer last year by myself. The old man at the Aomori station who I'd never known before guided me there, helped me order the food, took care of me while I was enjoying my breakfast. Even I scared of him for the first time, but he was really nice. But if you don't have local... More

Fun concept for a fish market to drive more sales to tourists. You initially buy "point" tickets at the front. From there, you can get a bowl of rice for one ticket and then you are off to walk around the market as half the stalls have sections with individual portions of various seafood. When you find something you like,... More

Visited this place after Auga. The distinct difference is that one can eat nokedon, i.e. ticketed select your own choice of fresh seafood from any of the stalls in this market. Its relatively inexpensive and very fresh!...can beat Tsukiji! Highly recommended to eat nokedon here.

Fresh seafood served with a bowl of rice, choose whatever seafood you like, fresh and reasonable price.

If Aomori is famous for two things, it will be apples and seafood! It was my first time in Aomori and after stumbling upon this market online, I was determined to find it and try this "Marché" style dining experience - the Japanese way. You first buy coupons from the management counter (or from an Obasan selling preserved vegetable), get... More

We are so glad we found these seafood markets. Opening at 7am, we were there for breakfast. You can pay either Y540 or Y1,080 for a number of tickets and receive a tray and a bowl of rice. You then select tasty seafood morsels to top your rice in exchange for the tickets. (Buy the big one). There are tables... More

One of the best meal experiences I had in Japan. In this place, you can have "nokkedon", or a sashimi bowl where you choose whatever you want in it. It is just so much fun to walk through the market's stalls and look at the selection of sashimi and other dishes, and then pick what you want to eat! You... More
