You buy a set of tickets and walk around the market exchanging them for the fresh seafood you want. For a person like me who wants to sample a bit of everything, this is perfect! The seafood was all amazingly fresh too.

it was a sashimi market where you purchase tickets in advance and walk around and choose your own stuffs. the food quality and freshness was good but the rice was just normal, not sushi vinegar's rice. so it basically ruined everything else

We went there for a late lunch after the Nebuta Festival parade. The place is the Japanese parallel of the cooked food centres in Singapore and is actually a raw seafood market cum eating areas where you can buy and eat your food on site....You buy coupons of 650 Yen or 1300 Yen from the counter at the entrance of the Centre and use them to pay for food you choose(such as tuna, prawns, mackerel, bream, sea urchin, fish roe etc) from the various seafood stalls in the Centre. Most people will buy a bowl of rice and add assortments of live seafood to it. I had 2 raw prawns and a small dish of cooked crab legs for 800 Yen. They were fresh and very delicious. There were tables and benches for sitting down and drinking water was free.More

This was a unique and tasty breakfast! The tickets were reasonably priced and went a surprisingly long way - it was a lot of fun to shop around for our toppings of choice. My bowl was overflowing and I couldn’t finish it all!

Making our own sushi bowl for breakfast was certainly a fun experience when in Aomori. The process is well explained by the various signs around the centre and the staff are very helpful as well. Once you buy your tickets, you then exchange them for...a bowl of rice and then the toppings of your choice. Items cost one, two or three tickets, though there was a good selection at the lower end, though obviously quality improves the more tickets an item costs. We were satisfied with our ¥650 spend. It was fun to try and the fish was fresh and tasty.More

I went to eat lunch there, the system is quite easy you have to queue and buy some tickets and then you can exchange the tickets in the fish shops of the market and make your own kaisendon (rice bowl with fresh seafood). Then you...can eat your own creation in a seat. It's a fun way to make your own rice bowl with seafood. Expect long queues if you come during Nebuta festival, so I recommend you come early.More

WONDERFUL breakfast with HUGE FRESH seafood donburi at only 1,300 yen!!! Loved this experience, do not miss it! A short 10 min walk from Aomori JR Station, easy to find by google maps as Aomori Nokkedon, and you go into a small indoor fish market,...bustling with fresh seafood. You need to buy a set of 10 coupons for 1,300 yens and get for this a bowl of hot sticky rice and buy small portions of seafood of your choice, going through the stalls.. we ate salmon roe, fatty tuna, prawns, roasted salmon, squid, AMAZING AND YUMMY!!!! GIVE IT A TRY!!More

The perfect place for sashimi lovers! You must first buy the coupons at the cashier and then get the bowl of rice, after that you can go nuts with whatever "toppings" you want. All of the seafood available is so fresh. You can choose to...buy from any vendor with the blue flag. Highly recommended for a different food experience in Japan :)More

This place came out with an innovative way to get people to the Furukawa Fish Market. This is a build it yourself Kaisendon (seafood rice bowl). You can buy a half sheet of scripts for 650 yen or a full sheet for 1300 yen which...is redeemable for various seafood portions of your choice. I would recommend you get the full sheet as you do not have to use the entire sheet on your first visit. The "rice stations" are changed daily as that will usually determine the route you will take to visit the different vendors. The vendors do not "undercut" each other. All portions are priced the same throughout the market. However, we did notice that the portion size did differ slightly. No matter which vendor you decide to visit, the seafood is fresh. Hot tea and water are available upon finding your seat. There are also other food vendors serving various side dishes. We visited this establishment for breakfast and lunch, and seating was always available. Wonderful seafood experience for a very reasonable price!More
