Peruse the day's seafood catch along with the locals at Omicho Market, a large venue selling fresh food in Kanazawa. Established in the mid-18th century, the market serves up produce, meat, fish, and flowers. Vendors will serve you samples of their wares in front of their stands, and the restaurants inside the market get especially busy around noon.

  • A great experience to visit and see the variety of fish to taste or buy. Don't miss the array of restaurants (including sushi) upstairs, great for lunch or dinner.  more »
  • This is the place whenever I go to Kanazawa. And when I want to eat sushi and delicious Bowl can feel free to, to buy at the end of buying cheap and fresh. For tourist souvenirs will shop in OMI market you can buy goods, that journey with JR because Naka is recommended on the back side together buy prepaid cards in. It is delicious salt Daifuku "Suzume. ~ ~

  • I went to the famous Tsukiji fish market thought Omi-cho market daily market too is touristy and not losing Kanazawa local color. Made major urban capital market was so seafood is not in its place that season, again I want to go more places. Kanazawa Castle and train station and good, rather than going to the 6 bus go by foot and located along the way.
