Great place for seafood as everything is located together. However, I would definitely say it has become slightly touristy and over hyped. Regardless, I had a wonderful meal whilst I was there and I felt the prices were affordable. It’s convenient to get to. About...More

Went there a couple of different time to eat sashimi rice bowls. There are many seafood stores and restaurants. Restaurants are very small. They understand english and have english menus. The quality of seafood is superb, but the price is also on the high-end.

Came here in the early morning and dug into some fresh tuna and salmon. It was really tough to resist the king crab! Some places could get crowded, but you'll find a table for sure.

The size of the market is not that big. Shops are well arranged. Seafood is fresh. I recommend having the king crabs and oysters. There are restaurants within the market. I think this place is best to be visited in the morning.

Went here in cold December, it is small and cramped and very cosy. We loved the fish bowl (Donburi) they offered here and had a nice time looking at all the different stalls.

Such a cute market place to rush to for breakfast... seafood is so fresh ... had a very satisfying breakfast. A bit pricey but well worth the freshness in the morning. Definitely a must-go for all to savour good Japanese seafood breakfast.

First... avoid crab and uni... these appears to have the highest mark ups. Instead, we ordered oysters, scallops and Tuna belly... which though at a premium, still represent very good value compared to back home and is super fresh.

The market is pretty small. Just a small area. Had our kaisendon breakfast there. It's not cheap. Pretty pricey. It is easy to walk around as it is small. We tried the melon and it's good! Better than the one we had in Hakodate. The...More
