Tried the Katte Don, king crab and snow crab for our early dinner as the day is shorter. By 4pm, it was pitch dark. For those who do not take raw seafood/sashimi, can have a option to choose fried food or tempura.

We had lunch here and it was a nice experience. The process is to buy a bowl of rice from the rice stand then go to the fish market stands to buy the raw fish of your choice. You can go to as many stands as you want, you pay for each type you get separately. If tou prefer not... More

Try your own rice bowl wit your choice of seafood - scallops, salmon tuna, shrimps, sea urchin, cod and something else. Total cost is entirely dependent on your choices, whether fish lover or not, at leat you must come and see.

Sashimi rice is the main point to visit Washoichiba. Buy a bowl of rice first and cost according to the weight. Take your bowl of rice to sashimi shop and many different types of sashimi for your selection. Sashimi is fresh and price is reasonable. Crab, other seafood, fruits and souvenir are also available inside the market.

The Washo market comprises dozens of stalls, most of them selling very fresh seafood. The eating experience is very basic, and the great fun here is in getting a bowl of rice (available in a few different sizes) and going from stall to stall: a piece of Toro here, a bite of Hamachi there, and so on.
