The fish market is a series of individual seafood stall holders selling a wide array of seafood. Crab is king and there is a variety of crab species to choose from. We chose our King Crab legs to be cooked and 10 minutes later they were delivered to restaurant across the road. We also ordered scallops cooked in butter and... More

A must see if you like seafood. Seafoods here are cheaper than in restaurants. Almost all shops offers to cook the seafood for you and you will eat it just in the side of the street.

Not big comparing with other fish market in Japan. So it's not very interesting if you visit here just for looking.

The must visit market in Sapporo, morning Nijo market. We have breakfast here and the first time eat giant crab and love the sweet strawberry. Many items we can buy but suggest to eat kind of seafoods.

A nice seafood market with many hidden shops in the alleys behind it. You'd be surprised at the number of small shops hidden in the back alleys, where they cook and serve the fresh seafood. Interesting place to see and discover new places to eat. The front is where all the seafood are sold. The shop owners will offer discounts... More

Compared with the Tsukiji Outer Market and the Curb Market in Sapporo, Nijo Market is tiny. There are the usual vendors with fresh seafood that can be bought and cooked on the spot, but relatively few vendors of fresh fruits/vegetables and dried goods. The whole market probably won't take more than half an hour to see, and is probably worthwhile... More

We visited Nijo Market, hoping for various snack items in sight but the place was actually a literal wet market. We didn't eat at all. We just walked and looked around.

A seafood market located in central area of Sapporo. There are many shops selling fresh seafood (crab, prawn, fish, sea shell etc), and they can cook them for you there. The price is cheaper comparing to Tokyo and Osaka.

The seafood is not as fresh as those in otaru. If you're going otaru, can skip the seafood here. Can still go nijo to have a look, nothing much tho'.

Seems to me the sole purpose of Nijo market was just built for tourist. No doubt the seafood was fresh but this is in Hokkaido! I wouldn't expect anything less than fresh! Prices weren't cheap and nothing really much to see.
