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.

Crab, other seafood, fruits and souvenir are also available inside the market.
