A great selection
Feb 2016
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.

To die for
Feb 2016 • Couples
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!

Fresh seafood

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.

Good food in good prices

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 ^^

wow
Mar 2014 • Couples
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.

A Great Experience (and cheap Fugu to boot)
Mar 2013 • Friends
The fish market in Shimonoseki is not as large or as famous as the one in Tsukiji (Tokyo) but it is much more tourist- friendly. It is across from Mojiko port (which is on Kyushu) and just down from the Kanmon bridge which unites Kyushu and Honshu Islands. So the setting is beautiful and the fish are as fresh as it gets.
A specialty of the area is Fugu, and it is everywhere. There are fugu platters ready to go from all the vendors, and there are restaurants on the upper floor, many with a view to the action below. We had a Fugu lunch set with Fugu Sashimi, roasted Fugu Soup, rice, Miso Soup and pickled vegetables for only 12EUR - amazingly cheap, and delicious.
About 200m away is a ferry (they also take bikes) across the straits to Mojiko Port, very fast, frequent and inexpensive, this side trip is also well worth it.

Sushi paradise
Oct 2012 • Solo
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 and enjoy! It's high quality stuff that's a lot cheaper than what you would pay at a restaurant.
