I drove all the way from Fukuoka in order to visit the Fish Market which is open to tourists during Saturday and Sunday. Lots of good and fresh seafood. You pay 1/3 of the normal price and get better quality seafood.

The front half of the fish market sells fresh seafood, but the back half is a wonderland of freshly prepared sushi and a myriad of other ready-to-eat yummies. Walk around and just grab a piece of whatever you want to try, find a seat somewhere...More
