Excite your senses with a trip to Morning Market, a bustling hub for purchasing freshly caught seafood. Red king crab, sea urchins, and salmon eggs are just a handful of the delicacies offered across the lively market, sprawling across four blocks. Take your time to examine the day's catch before taking your pick and haggling for the best price. Many eateries serve the local dish of raw seafood and steaming rice, but if you're feeling adventurous, try the live squid sashimi, a true taste of Japan.

  • Fun. Can catch your own squid to eat.
  • Great super fresh crabs
