The market stall holders have diversified and become food stalls. Reasonable fare at average prices but not many customers.

Having been to Kuromon Market in Osaka, Nishiki Market in Kyoto and Tsukiji Market in Tokyo, we expected Aomori’s seafood to be even fresher since they are up north, near winter and near the sea port. But the quality of freshness here is not as good. The freshness even lose to the sashimi we had at Lovina mall the night before. We were surprised but having said that, the Nekkodon concept is interesting. We bought 2 booklets of coupons at the booth infront of the entrance. You pay a coupon for a bowl of rice. From then on, you can pick the sushi or food items that you want from different stalls as you walk down the market. Market is abit wet and slippery at some areas so be careful. All prices are stated clearly at the stall. We find the price here slightly steeper. We feel that this is more a tourist place. But still worth a visit for the experience.

Aomori Gyosai Cener Honten is an indoor market where there are many stalls selling seafood. You have to buy the vouchers yourself and get bowls or rice prior to select the seafood items from the stalls. It is quite interesting to DIY for lunch here.

As others have indicated, you buy tickets that you redeem for a bowl of rice and sashimi toppings. Realistically expect about 15 tickets per person if you want anything interesting, so about ¥2000.

Toppings are generally goos and the build your own experience is fun.

Worth doing

Just behind the main shopping street in Aomori is this covered market with vendors eliing fresh local fruit, vegetables and fish.

One of the highlights is to buy a bowl od rice and a batch of ouchers, then go fro stall to stall choosing items to add to the bowl – some items are just one voucher, some two or three. Eating areas are provided around the market – upstairs as well as down. I believe this type of dish is called a Nokkedon. A previous posting provides an excellent guide to how to participate in this experience.

It was fascinating to see produce which we didn’t recognise and could not name. An English speaking guide would have been a great advantage..!!
