  • On our second day you have been the opportunity to visit the fish market in Kanazawa. This is where you can eat the freshest fish! From 11am he began to crowd out... but it's very worth visiting! You can make a tapas route and try out what each store has. It's amazing! The scallop skewers are amazing! And the octopus ones! we loved this experience! We go up to the second floor, where the restaurants are to try a fish dish. Highly recommended!

  • Nice stroll and good place for a non-fancy but tasty restaurant! Wonderful exposition of crabs, oysters and fish. Plus fruits are great!  more »
  • It was a market of the fresh food center, but it is regrettable that the appearance of the restaurant and the eating walk changecompletely changed at all recently and it knows old times.

  • A lively and clean daily market of Kanazawa! It is the largest fresh food market too. The atmosphere along the covered streets are so colorful. There are many shops and restaurants with excellent local seafood and other produce. Have your lunch here! This is a place not to be missed.
  • One of my favorite fish markets in Japan. You can nice cuts of tuna, salmon and other seafood. Ask them to slice it for dine-in or take out.
  • Nice walk through the market. Do watch out for opening hours. They do not open early like typical market. Lots of fresh seafood there, especially crabs. Oh, they close early too.
  • The ground floor are mainly seafood stalls selling different kind of seafoods. Such stalls usually close at around 3pm. A lot of stalls provide on site dinning. There are other stall selling dried food, vegetables, fruit etc. There is a lot of restaurants located in first floor for visitors who prefer better dinning environment.
  • What an amazing place! The amount of fresh food available here was awesome. I can highly recommend eating breakfast here. Well worth a visit if you are close by.
