2 reviews
・Convenient pick-up and drop-off locations in Fukuoka City. Not so early departure tour for a leisurely day in Yamaguchi Prefecture by Sea of Japan! <br><br>・Have a glimpse of Yamaguchi in Japan’s Chugoku region! Akama Shrine in Shimonoseki has a long history and is regarded as power spot by the local. <br><br>・Karato Market is in particular notable for its seafood and sushi, and a can't-miss spot for sushi fans! <br><br>・Experience driving across the&#xa0;Tsunoshima Bridge and visit Motonosumi Inari Shrine which is selected as one of Japan's 31 most spectacular spots. The impressive shrine gates stand in a row and stretch over 100 meters towards the sea, attracting viewers to a fascinating torii world.

We sent in the morning time and it was not very busy. Also it was quite a cold day but the sun was shining. Inside it smelled really fishy however that is to be expected in a fish market. If you are adventurous sample some of the fish.

For the freshest sushi of your life go there by all means! It's a lively place and you can eat your sushi or any other frutos do Mar right there. It won't get any fresher! Fugu plays a big role here and the prices are really low! And it is not only sushi but also fried and seared and what have you. An absolute must for every visitor of the Straits!

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.

I was there for 2 nights in Shimonoseki for the second day i went to visit Shimonoseki kaikyokan(aquarium) and Shimonoseki fish market , this time I stay in winter (Dec 2014) so I plan to visit here again in summer , I love it :) small town and can walk easily I walk from the hotel( Toyoko inn Shimonoseki) to the fishmarket....for me this place really looks like fish market for real and food are reasonably price, I got some snack and sweet in the price that you can't even find in Tokyo ^^ and lucky I got there in the evening so the fish market japanese style is dump the price down so you can have sushi from 100 yen to 500 yen up to the topping I bought so many (hahahah) and eat it in front of the market near to the bay but this is really cold after that i saw they have small space for the customer inside the building so sorry i did not take any picture inside the market my heart is floating away cause it's Sushi Heaven ^^

Maybe not as big a Tokyo but wow, this is a real gem for visitors to Japan. Market is split into the fresh fish bit - loads of varieties and a food court area where you can buy/try lots of tasty treats and very reasonable prices. We were staying in Kokura across the Kanmon Straight so got the train to Mojiko, walked along the sea side walk and then through the Kanmon straight pedestrain tunnel to get to the market.
