Aomori Gyosai Cener Honten is an indoor market where there are many stalls selling seafood. You have to buy the vouchers yourself and get bowls or rice prior to select the seafood items from the stalls. It is quite interesting to DIY for lunch here.

My sister and I specifically changed the date going to Aomori just so we can go when this place is open. It ended up being a good call, as the rice bowl was absolutely delicious! It was possibly the most fresh and delicious seafood I've...More

Indulged some really nice seafood sashimi. As Aomori is right on the Sea of Japan, they have access to amazing seafood which you can enjoy in the Gyosai Center. Not much English but you can point and pick what youd like to eat.
