  • 很喜歡這城市,到了近江町市場,沒想到裡面的種類非常多,還要是好吃的真的很值得來!我們就一路在掃街,生的熟的也吃個飽,吃得高興!後來還經過一間吃魚生飯的,開門時間較遲,大約十一點才開門,看到日本人也排隊,於是又去排了,魚生非常大塊,味道也不錯,很值得吃啊! 
  • 卡琳摸魚兒趣:來到金澤必須錢來的重要景點,不只體驗當地市井的熱鬧活力,也是個尋覓美食的好地方,即使充滿了觀光客,餐飲的價格卻還是相當公道。 
  • 帶子,牡丹蝦,海膽,生蠔,統統500yen! 我選擇了一只能大能登蟹,12000yen,即場蒸熟及食用,美味非常!比黑門市場便宜及沒那麼商業化,值得推介!超讚

  • I think it's quite a touristy place and a friend of mine from Kanazawa confirmed my impression saying local people avoid it. Food it's expensive, done for the masses of visitors that visit the market since early in the morning. It's not impossible to get good food, but I expected an experience more authentic.
  • An amazing variety of seafood, produce, and stands for unagi, croquettes, mochi, and much more. Upper floors have restaurants, but the ground floor is where the market is located. As a tourist, the experience is interesting and fun, but the prices are generally on the higher side.
  • Very satisfied after a trip to this market place. It's full of seafood stalls that can prepare sashimi of seafood of your choice on the spot. Had the freshest uni, ebi and oyster sashimi in my life. A heaven for tourists in terms of eating, shopping, and taking photos, the market is also where the locals shop.
  • Small but great local fish market. Fish and seafood from Kanazawa is famous and even sold at Tokyo's Tsukiji Fish Market. Come here before closing hours and the fishmongers are willing to strike a deal.
  • A must-stop before proceeding to other sites. It is located near the Kanazawa JR station thus making walkable. The market is filled with a lot of fresh fruits and catch of the season. You can request for them to prepare the fresh seafood for you to eat, as many tourists do not have an access to a kitchen. I had a good bowl of Kaisendon in the market and it was worth the 30mins wait!
